MADRID, March 11 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Atlético de Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has assured that the team must continue “with the current dynamics” and “enjoy the good football” that it has been developing in recent weeks, starting with the LaLiga Santander duel this Monday against Girona in Montilivi.
“We must continue with the dynamic we are in: being a strong team defensively, everyone working and trying to do damage in every action and finish the plays. We must also enjoy the football we are doing, because we are playing very good football. We must continue like this to be as high as possible”, he said in an interview with the team’s official media on the occasion of his designation as Mahou’s Five Star Player for the month of February.
Thus, the French striker appealed to focus on Girona, whom they will face this Monday. “I have seen them many games and the truth is that I really like the way they play. They have very good players like Riquelme, who is ours, and Alex García. It will be a difficult game, but we need the three points and we will give everything to get them,” he said.
In another order of things, Griezmann was happy to receive the Mahou Five Star Player of the month award for the month of February as the most valued player by mattress fans. “I am very happy with my games, with the work I am doing for the team. Receiving the support of the fans is important, it means that I am on the right track. We must continue like this, there are still many games left,” he said.
Lastly, he acknowledged that they miss Mozambican defender Reinildo Mandava, who had to undergo surgery after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament. “‘Rei’ is a very important player for us, a very important man in the locker room. He knows he has our love, we miss him on a day-to-day basis and also on the field. Now the most important thing is that he recovers well. We wait for him with open arms”, he concluded.
