's performance after the 1-0 win over



Griezmann, who entered the field in the 60th minute, was able to score his team's only goal in the 66th minute on a pass from Thomas Lemar and gave Atletico Madrid three points. The French star has returned to Atlético on a two-year loan deal from Barcelona, and Roji Blancos played him less than 30 minutes in their recent game to avoid triggering his buyout clause. After last night's victory, Simeone praised the French star.

"As long as Griezmann manages to respond as he does, having him on the field is very important and I understand that you have to put him on when it suits the team best.

"The entry of Lemar and Griezmann gave us more peace of mind to impose the team's game."

Yannick Carrasco is close to leaving Atletico and the Argentine said: 

"You can't imagine it, it's normal for all coaches except for some..

"Something can always happen that is important for the clubs, we are not the owners but coaches."
