Diego Simeone hailed Antoine Griezmann as the best player in the world after the Frenchman’s double against Club Brugge on Wednesday gave Atletico Madrid precious 3 points in the Champions League.
Griezmann scored twice and assisted Koke as Atletico saw off Brugge 3-1 in their second game of the group.
Simeone was full of praise for his player after the game:
“I said it last season and I’ll say it again — Griezmann is the best player in the world,” Simeone said afterwards.
“He won the Europa League, World Cup, Super Cup and finished second in a league with Barcelona and Real Madrid.”
Griezmann. who in an interview earlier in the season said he was the best player in the world, again reiterates his desire for the crown.
“It’s not me who votes but I had a big season,” he said.
“I’m very happy and proud of my season, there are still a few months to go so we’ll see.”
