Marseille and Atletico Madrid are about to face in the Europa League final and Dimitri Payet praised his national team teammate Antoine Griezmann as he is the key man for the Spanish side.

Griezmann has scored 27 goals this season so far and he helped his team to climb to the second place in the domestic league and to reach the Europa League final – and Payet knows that his team will have to stop him somehow.

The former West Ham player spoke about Griezmann’s qualities as he said, according to Sports Keeda:

“Grizou is their mister plus. He scores goals and creates them.”

“He’s capable of making the difference at any given moment and we’ll have to keep an eye on him the way you would on your milk if you were boiling it.”

“They have the experience but we’ve studied our opponents and we’ll know how to take them on.”

“We might not be able to play beautiful football throughout but the main thing is to score one more goal than them.”
