Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann was voted as La Liga’s best player for December

The France international managed four goals and one assist in four games for Atletico during the last month of 2018.

Griezmann proved to have a key role as Atletico collected 10 points out of a possible 12 over December with the only time he failed to find the net coming in a 1-1 draw at Girona at the beginning of the month.

Following that, the 27-year-old scored against Deportivo Alaves in a 3-0 win before adding two goals and an assist in Atletico’s narrow 3-2 win at Real Valladolid.

The World Cup winner then capped off a fantastic 2018 by scoring the winner in Atletico’s 1-0 victory over Espanyol.

Now La Liga have announced Griezmann has come out on top for December’s Player of the Month award.
