Antoine Griezmann finally loses his patience with questions about Atletico Madrid future

He's had enough

Darragh Murphy

It’s just a hunch but we have a sneaking suspicion that Antoine Griezmann is sick of insisting that he’s happy at Atletico Madrid.

Time and time again, Griezmann is asked whether he intends to remain an Atletico player beyond the summer and, in every instance, he’s maintained his allegiances to his current club in spite of the apparent interest from both Manchester United and Atletico’s arch-rivals, Real Madrid.

“It’s always the same question and now I don’t know what to say,” the 26-year-old told Spanish media outlet AS a fortnight ago.

“I find myself repeating myself and I certainly see myself here.

“I feel it’s an answer that I’ve given so many times now but that very question is quite tiring.”

Well someone clearly didn’t get the memo that Griezmann didn’t want to talk about his future any more as the Frenchman was presented with the question yet again after his goal decided Saturday’s La Liga clash with Espanyol.

beIN Sports tried to sneak in an enquiry about where Griezmann sees himself come the start of next season and that was the breaking point for the forward, who stormed off.

“You have said many times that you are happy here but you don’t know what will happen, do you stand by that or are you convinced that you will stay at Atlético?” the reporter asked, as translated by AS.

“That’s enough, ok?” Griezmann curtly replied before walking off.
