Antoine Griezmann is excited to play in the Europa League final against Olympique Marseille. The game will be played in Olympique Lyon’s stadium, which is only 70 kilometres away from his home town of Macon. If Atletico wins, it would also be Griezmann’s first ‘big trophy’ as a player.
“I really want this match to come as it’s in Lyon, 45 minutes from my home, and there will be many members of my family there to see me so hopefully it will be a happy ending,”, Griezmann was quoted by UEFA.com ahead of the final.
“I won the Spanish Super Cup in 2014 and now I have the chance to win the Europa League, so I really want to do everything possible to help my teammates”, the French forward continued. “For the club it is a very important trophy and is a way to show we are always there to fight with the best.”
