He would love to be in Cardiff on June 3, he and his Atletico Madrid, but instead, he’ll have to watch the Champions League final on TV. Asked about who he thinks will win, Antoine Griezmann seemed confident that it will not be the team that left them out of the final.
Juventus will win the Champions League and therefore Gigi Buffon the Ballon d’Or
the Frenchman told Cadena Ser. Juve are facing Real Madrid in the final, the team that put an end to Atletico’s Champions League dream this season, in the semifinals.
We did not win titles, which is what we wanted. We fulfilled an objective, third, we did a great job. Pity about the semis
Griezmann said as well, talking about Atletico’s season. As for his future, it remains to be seen if he will spend next season at the ‘Rojiblancos’, with numerous rumours insisting that he won’t resist the temptation to move to England, and more specifically to Manchester United, who are reported to have shown great interest in him.
A detail that could prove crucial, is whether or not United will play Champions League football next season. They will, only if they beat Ajax in the Europa League final.
