Griezmann congratulates to his former team Atletico Madrid for winning La Liga.
French starAntoine Griezmann
thinks failing in big games is the reason behind Barcelona’s unsuccessful campaign in La Liga.
The French international scored his side’s only goal in their 1-0 victory over the already relegated Eibar, but the victory couldn’t move them from third place on the table behind the champions
, who sit second.
Despite falling out of the title race, Griezmann insists that he doesn’t want to make excuses and congratulates his former team Atletico Madrid for winning the La Liga title for the first time since 2013.
“Our situation at the beginning of the season was not good”,
he told reporters fromMarca
“However, we had an almost perfect 2021, but in truth, we failed in the big games.
“We are hurt, but we failed in those important games.
“Now we have to rest and see what things we can improve on to be a team that can win it all next year.
“We have to congratulate Atletico. I am very happy for them, for Cholo (Simeone) and Koke.”
La Blaugrana finished third in the domestic league with 79 points, five points behind Real Madrid and seven points behind Atletico Madrid, which leaves Ronald Koeman in a bad situation, so we have to wait and see what will happen to the club in the summer and how they will prepare for the next season.
