Antoine Griezmann refuses to discuss Atletico Madrid future

Atletico Madrid charged for far-right banner at Europa final

With Payet's exit went any hope of them clawing a way back into the contest, which Griezmann and Gabi ensured was taken away from them completely in a 3-0 defeat, yet in his post-match media conference Garcia stood by his decision to start his hobbled star.

The trophy guarantees the victor a spot in the Champions League next season, although Atletico are already assured of that thanks to their league standing in Spain, the capital side need to earn at least a point in their final league match in order to secure 2nd place in La Liga, with Real Madrid 3 points behind. "Simeone has taught me a lot". The truth is this was a dream for me, to win a trophy with Atletico, with [Diego Simeone] and my friends and teammates.

Griezmann, who has been heavily linked with a move to LaLiga champions Barcelona, netted either side of half-time in a dominant performance by Atleti. "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.

Marseille had wasted a chance to take a fourth-minute lead when Valere Germain skewed his shot wide with only Jan Oblak to beat.

"We missed our chance in the first half", Garcia added. "In the second half they raised their level and the best team won".

"This is a reward for me after I left home aged 14, for all the work I have put in, the suffering", Griezmann said.

Muntari Cup

"Florentino called to wish me good luck and said we'll see each other in the UEFA Super Cup", he revealed.

He athletically won a high ball in midfield and quickly swapped passes with Koke before gliding into the penalty area unchallenged and clipping the ball over the onrushing Mandanda.

Payet was a key figure in France's run to the Euro 2016 final, although he has not featured for the national team since a 2-1 win over Belarus on October 10.

The French club's hopes faded after Payet went off injured in the 31st with what appeared to be a thigh injury.

Atletico is looking to win the Europa League for the third time in nine seasons, after triumphing in 2010 and again in 2012, shortly after "Cholo" Simeone was appointed coach. It also lost another Champions League final to Real Madrid in 2014 and the gulf in experience was evident.
