Antoine Griezmann returns to Atletico Madrid on loan

By Obiajulu Chiagoziem

Antoine Griezmann has rejoined Atletico Madrid from Barcelona on loan, just two years after leaving the Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico Madrid sold the French striker to Barcelona for €120million in 2019, yet he has never managed to recapture his best form at Camp Nou.

Messi’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain earlier in August might have given Griezmann the opportunity to take centre stage, but the 30-year-old received booing from the Barca fans as they laboured to win Getafe last weekend.

The Catalans manager Koeman defended him saying: “I don’t like it when a Barca player is whistled. Someone who works like Antoine can never be criticised.”

The central attacking midfielder has enjoyed a great playing time whilst in Atletico and there he is now.
