Griezmann, Cristiano and Ceballos

I've no idea what's going on in Griezmann's head. I guess he feels that he has outgrown Atlético Madrid and ones own over-inflated impression is a trait often associated with vanity. What baffles me is how this situation is turning out and ultimately the player is set to suffer the ire of the supporters as his lack of prudence on the matter is showing on a daily basis. If he has decided that the time has come for a departure from the club, then the time to announce that is on the final day and as things currently stand his move away from the Wanda is taken as a such a given that it makes the front page of yesterday's El Mundo Deportivo.

Atletico Madrid's French forward Antoine Griezmann looks on during the Spanish league football match Club Atletico de Madrid vs FC Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid on October 14, 2017


I sense that many Atletico Madrid fans have lost patience with a player who arrives at an Atleti side who have just won the league, misses a key penalty in the Champions League final in Milan and whose main aspiration is to join the likes of Messi and Cristiano on the exclusive podium reserved for the best players on the planet. Cristiano himself is known tho throw the odd tantrum when things fail to go his way and at present the striker form Madeira appears to be in a certain type of free fall. The Portuguese striker however can boast of an incredibly successful career but having said that, he needs to be among the goals and to avoid creating a Griezmann-esque situation.


Other side of the coin

Ceballos, currently contrasts drastically with the pair. The player is someway down Zidane's pecking order with the likes of regulars Modric and Kroos ensuring that the new signing's playing time is somewhat limited, despite both having a recent fallow patch as has been the case generally with the entire team. Ceballos hasn't uttered a word publicly regarding his situation but uses the shop window of the Under-21 side to show Zidane what he's currently missing out on. It baffles me why the French coach fails to use the Seville born player along with Asensio to shake things up in a stagnant team with only Isco delivering exemplary performances. His day will come, of that I'm sure but the overall scenario does showcase how certain players feel the need to react in any given situation.
