Griezmann says he wasn't wrong about Atleti.

  • Atleti have a great group, says France star.

  • The France striker was close to joining Barca for €100m (£89.5m) at the end of last season.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has said his decision to stay at the club was the right one.

Diego Simeone’s side beat Los Blancos 4-2 to win the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday and following the triumph over their arch rivals, World Cup winner Griezmann believes his decision to reject a move to Barcelona was a positive move.

"I stayed because I could see they were building a great project here, I had confidence in this club and in Simeone, and today we saw that I was not wrong," Griezmann told reporters as published.

"It was our first game back and we worked really hard and put in a huge effort and we have to continue like this because we are a great group."
