Speaking at a press conference to unveil his new book, titled “Derrière le sourire” or “Behind the smile” in English, Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann claimed that he was ready to leave the club.
“We have finished 3rd in La Liga, which was the club’s aim, but us the players want more. I want to win titles. I have arrived at a point where playing nice football and scoring goals is not enough. That is finished. To win titles, that is what I will look for this summer when the moment comes to decide my future.”
“With Atletico we keep reaching the final or the semi-final of the Champions League, we are close, but we are missing something. At the club, they must see what they can do. It will depend on transfers. I do not know if they understand, but all the players, you the media, my family, know that I like football to win trophies. To feel strong emotions. Now I want to taste that. We will see what happens…”
“Today if I need to leave it will not be a problem. It could be to England because that is the trend, Germany, China or the United States. I am ready to leave.”
