Atletico Madrid President Knows Nothing About Antoine Griezmann’s New Club
DBasia.news – Atletico Madrid president, Enrique Cerezo, spoke about the future of Antoine Griezmann who had decided to leave the club. Regarding rumors of leaving to Barcelona, Cerezo claimed he did not know about it.
Cerezo, indirectly, acknowledged the absence of an offer from Barcelona to try to complete the transfer of the 28-year-old player. Nevertheless, Cerezo hopes Atletico fans will still treat him well when he later joins a new club.
“Griezmann has been with the team for five years and is doing great work. We have good relations. Capitalizing in trust and friendship,” Cerezo was quoted as saying by AS.
“I hope wherever he goes he will be treated the same as when playing with us,” he hoped.
“I do not know where he will go, he did not say. I really have no idea where he is going. I think no one knows,” concluded Cerezo.
Cerezo even said firmly that there was no offer from Barca that come to him regarding Griezmann. “No one from Barca contacted me,” he stressed.
