Zapping Eleven Mondial Top 10: players at the end of their Serie A contract
On the last day of the transfer window, Atlético Madrid finally completed the return of Antoine Griezmann as part of a paying loan of 10 million euros with a mandatory purchase option of 40 million euros. While this comeback is causing a lot of talk, Colchoneros president Enrique Cerezo spoke about the Frenchman’s comeback and sent a message to Madrid supporters.
Griezmann’s return was not planned!
In an interview with El Larguero, the 73-year-old businessman confided in the return of the native of Mâcon to the Rojiblancos: “It’s a three-stripe hit and we were lucky to have Griezmann for the next two years. We weren’t counting on Griezmann, but neither did we know Saúl was going to leave. I couldn’t talk to him yet because I was in France“.
He also spoke about potential whistles that could accompany Atlético’s new number 8: “I would understand (the whistles), but what I mean is, it won’t get anywhere. He left in a weird way, but he showed he was crazy to come back to Atlético de Madrid. There are some fans who won’t like it, but there are others who were thrilled with his return and ultimately what’s important is the performance and having the best team. He’s coming under extraordinary conditions for us and it shows how eager he is to play here.“.
With the signing of Griezmann coupled with those of Lecomte, Cunha, De Paul and Marcos Paulo, President Colchonero wants to appear better in the Champions League by setting the goal of “quarter-finals“and there is no doubt that Atlético Madrid will want to keep their title as Spanish champion.
Atlético Madrid president Enrique Cerezo spoke about Antoine Griezmann’s return to the Colchoneros. If he expects whistles for the French, he nevertheless wanted to send a message to the supporters.
