Griezmann: "We want to beat Villarreal, PSV and Madrid"

Antoine Griezmann has expressed his confidence ahead of a series of crucial fixtures facing Atlético Madrid over the next two weeks as they seek to keep pace with Barcelona at the top of La Liga and to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League for a third successive season. “We are working hard to win the games that we have left. Now we have Villarreal, the Champions League and Real Madrid, games that are great to be a part of and we want to win all three,” the France international told the club’s official website.

Looking ahead to the game against fourth-placed Villarreal at the Calderón this Sunday, Griezmann noted: “They beat us last year. It’s going to be tough, but with the fans behind us and playing our game, I’m sure we’ll come out on top.”

Despite persistent speculation about his future, the 24-year-old insists he has no intention of leaving Atlético. “I’m happy to be playing at the Calderón. The fans really get behind us and drive us on. I’m very grateful for the support I get and I want to give everything to repay the affection everybody at Atlético has shown me.”
