Atleti boss Simeone: "Griezmann can give us options in attack"

"He’s a very good player and he is very quick. It’s also true that a lot of other players have been talked about, and we could make two teams with all of them.”

Atlético Madrid coach Diego Simeone has discussed France international Antoine Griezmann, who is set to join the Rojiblancos after a 30-million-euro deal was agreed with Real Sociedad.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s match against MLS side San José Earthquakes, Simeone said: “He’s a very good player. He is very quick and can give us a lot of options in attack.”

However, with Griezmann yet to finalise personal terms with Atlético, ‘El Cholo’ sent a message of caution: “It’s also true that a lot of other players have been talked about as possibly coming [to Atlético], and we could make two teams out of all of them.”

Pre-season: “It has stood us in good stead, above all the new boys. I hope I can have the whole group available as soon as possible, but right now that’s not possible. I’m satisfied with our work over these three weeks.”

Match against San José: “I hope it’s an entertaining game and that lots of people go to the stadium. People have treated us with a lot of affection in the United States. Our plan is to keep on growing in footballing terms, to get to our best level.”
