  • Atletico Madrid charged for far-right banner at Europa final

Marseille had been desperate to win the second European trophy in their history, on French soil, 25 years after beating AC Milan in the inaugural Champions League final.

Marseille dominated the opening stages but gifted Atletico took the lead when Andre-Frank Anguissa failed to control goalkeeper Steve Mandanda's pass out and Gabi intercepted before setting Griezmann free to score in the 21st minute.

"Belonging to this group is above winning a title".

Antoine Griezmann demonstrated what he described as his "cold-blooded" streak in scoring two goals as Atletico Madrid crushed Marseille 3-0 in the final of the Europa League.

He returned to the Spanish capital in 2015, with his second stint with Atleti coming to an end at the end of the season as Torres embarks on a new chapter in his career.

Griezmann struck in either half as Madrid captain Gabi rounded off victory with a late effort.

"If he stays I'll be delighted and if he leaves I'll be grateful for everything he's done for us. I hope he gets the send-off he deserves on Sunday". "Whatever he decides I'll be happy because he has given us his life". Now we are in the UEFA Super Cup, so he could play four finals with us. He's given a lot to us over the years. "Even without him, we'll continue to grow".

The 27-year-old Griezmann, who collected the man-of-the-match award, declined to discuss whether he would stay or leave Atletico at the end of the season. This [final] was a very important game, as it allowed us to keep up at the top level.

Cerezo's confident prediction on Griezmann also appears to have been backed up after the France star admitted he owes Simeone a huge debt.

"Your feeling for a club gets stronger every game, every year".

The striker missed a penalty in the 2016 Champions League final against Real Madrid which his side lost in a shoot-out and that made him more determined to perform against Marseille.

Victory for Atletico, who have already qualified for the Champions League, means the automatic group-stage berth will go to third place in France, a spot in which Marseille could still finish.
