Viet Nam News - - SPORT -

LYON — An­toine Griez­mann said it was not the time to think about his fu­ture af­ter lead­ing Atletico Madrid to a 3-0 vic­tory over Mar­seille in Wed­nes­day’s Europa League fi­nal in Lyon.

“Now is not the time to talk about my fu­ture. I need to just en­joy this mo­ment, hav­ing won a ti­tle, and cel­e­brate it with the fans,” said Griez­mann af­ter pick­ing up the man-of-the-match award for scor­ing the Span­ish side’s first two goals.

The France star has been tipped to leave Atletico at the end of the sea­son af­ter four years in the Span­ish cap­i­tal, with spec­u­la­tion that he will join Barcelona.

He got the opener mid­way through the first half and then net­ted a su­perb sec­ond four min­utes af­ter the break.

He also played a part in the build-up to Gabi’s late goal that sealed the vic­tory.

“It is a dream for me to win a ti­tle. We had a chance in the Cham­pi­ons League and it wasn’t to be, but this time it was my turn,” said the striker, who had not pre­vi­ously won a ma­jor tro­phy with the club.

He was in the Atletico side that lost on penal­ties to Real Madrid in the Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal in 2016 and lost the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship fi­nal with France that sum­mer.
