Griezmann scores twice as Atletico wins Europa League final

Atletico finishes strong after poor start to season Griezmann scores twice as Atletico wins Europa League final

I tip my hat off to Marseille, they have a lot to be proud of. "In my career I could win many trophies, I had the luck to play in great teams, to be part of the best generation of Spanish players who achieved everything there is, but when you have a dream since you were small, like this, to win with your team".

The trophy guarantees the victor a spot in the Champions League next season, although Atletico are already assured of that thanks to their league standing in Spain, the capital side need to earn at least a point in their final league match in order to secure 2nd place in La Liga, with Real Madrid 3 points behind.

"We were hoping he was close to 100 per cent ready".

His goals might end up being the parting gift, considering Griezmann has been increasingly linked with a move to Barcelona.

"We missed our chance in the first half", Garcia added.

Victory for Atletico, who have already qualified for the Champions League, means the automatic group-stage berth will go to third place in France, a spot in which Marseille could still finish.

"The scoreline is harsh but the better team won". "It represents the value of hard work, a steady hand and consistency, values to be successful in life".

He got the opener midway through the first half and then netted a superb second four minutes after the break. I had lost finals, I left home at 14 to win titles and today I had the chance to win a trophy.

He celebrated both goals with an energetic celebratory dance from popular video game Fortnite. They had previously won the Europa League in 2010 and again in 2012, the latter coming just six months after Diego Simeone's appointment as coach.

Marseille had been desperate to win the second European trophy in their history, on French soil, 25 years after beating AC Milan in the inaugural Champions League final. It also lost another Champions League final to Real Madrid in 2014 and the gulf in experience was evident.

Atletico took Griezmann off in the final moments to give veteran forward Fernando Torres a send-off, as he came on to a huge ovation from the red-and-white horde of Atletico fans.
