A title of best player for Griezmann, finally!

Antoine Griezmann, who found a smile again at Atlético de Madrid, obtained his first individual distinction for a long time.

Antoine Griezmann can now sit at Angel Correa’s table, Thomas lemar and Joao Félix. The return in the form of “Grizi” in the jersey ofAtlético de Madrid is symbolized by an honorary title of best player of the Colchoneros of the month of November. The new Rojiblancos 8 scored 2 goals and provided an assist in 4 matches last month.

It’s not that anecdotal. The French international had not obtained an individual distinction of this kind since his Player of the Month trophy for December in La Liga in 2018. Almost 3 years ago! The native of Mâcon had had the best year of his career by winning the Europa League, being voted best player in the competition, then the World Cup, with the title of MVP of the final against Croatia.

Griezmann was obviously never put forward during his two nightmarish years at FC Barcelona. Uncomfortable on the pitch as in the dressing room of the Blaugranas, in the shadow of Lionel Messi, the player trained at Real Sociedad, recruited for 120 million euros, had only scored 15 goals in 48 matches during of its first season (2019-2020).

The following year, the generous left-hander had notably been one of the main architects of his team during the eventful course in the Copa del Rey. He even unblocked the situation in the final against Bilbao (0-4), but it was a certain Messi who had obtained the title of player of the match.
