Europa League victor Atletico Madrid will receive 26 million euros from UEFA for the performance in European competition this season, AS reported. He's played three finals with us and won two (including the 2014 Spanish Super Cup).

Meanwhile, Griezmann has 29 goals and 15 assists in 48 appearances for Atletico this season. "This competition has given us a lot".

He had a beaming grin on his face as he walked alone toward the Atletico supporters, holding the trophy aloft with one hand.

The report claims that club president Josep Maria Bartomeu is convinced the La Liga winners have agreed terms with Griezmann and wants to ensure relations with Atletico are not damaged.

The French worldwide has finally managed to break the second place curse, beating Marseille 3-0 in the final to lift the UEFA Europa League trophy.

Following Wednesday's final, Liverpool fans were quick to urge their players not to touch the trophy ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26, recalling an incident from their famous night in Istanbul in 2005.

"It was a dream of mine to win a title under Simeone and I told myself that this was my time".

"And I think there is no better way to say goodbye to Atletico than lifting the trophy and he deserves it more than anyone else". Wednesday's win came against Marseille, the club he supported as a youngster, but he said beating them did not in any way take the shine off his evening.
