Simeone: "Our best player, Griezmann, back to his best"



The Atlético Madrid manager says the partnership between Griezmann and Gameiro has helped his number 7 to feel more comfortable and get back to his best.

Diego Simeone's Atlético Madrid welcome Real Sociedad to the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday looking to build on their recent success in front of goal.

Griezmann: "He is much better, much more immersed in the football we have gotten used to. He has gotten better and he needs a reference point. He did well with Torres, with Gameiro and we hope to find the best partnerships between our forwards that can make him feel most comfortable."

Have Atlético recovered their best form? "It happens when the intensity grows and you force it a little bit. From the start, the work has been good but the presence of Gameiro in the last few games has given us directness and precision in attack. It coincides with the best moment of our best player and that's Griezmann. With them on the fied, we have the chance to improve. The defensive work has always been there.

Vitolo in Madrid: "They are situations that the club's medical department manage, I am only thinking about the game against La Real. I didn't speak with him or with the medical team. I know what he has but not how long it will take him to recover."

Partnership between Gameiro and Griezmann: "The numbers speak for themselves. The partnership between them has been marked with goals for the last two years. They give assists for goals, they both convert. It's sure that Griezmann feels more comfortable with Gameiro and I don't say that, the numbers do and they don't lie.”
