Juanfran has revealed that he is “sure” that Antoine Griezmann and everyone in the Atletico Madrid squad will be back next year to “play another final”
Los Rojiblancos won their third Europa League crown on Wednesday’s final against Marseille at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon with a convincing 3-0 win.
Griezmann capitalised on a mistake from Andre Zambo Anguissa to give Atletico the lead, before adding his second of the game with another clinical finish.
Captain Gabi then scored the Spanish side’s third of the game.
Speaking after the final, Juanfran expressed his confidence that the Barcelona target Griezmann will remain at Madrid for next season.
“The finals about details and Griezmann’s goal allowed us to push forward, and for them to lower their level of play,” said the defender, according to ChicagoTribune.
“We all had a great game and Griezmann was marvellous. We love him and he deserves good things to happen to him. I’m sure next year we will all be here and play another final.”
The Spanish right-back is hopeful that Atletico can build on their progress over the years and start winning more silverware in the future.
“Many years, many finals, more won and lost and that is great. We are having spectacular years and hopefully, we can have some more,” he added.
