Antoine Griezmann wants to continue to make history at Atlético de Madrid, where he has returned since 2021, after a first spell between 2014 and 2019. Voted best player of the month for November at his club, the striker, in great form, now hopes to become the top scorer in the history of the Colchoneros. With 173 goals, the record is held by Luis Aragonés, who died on 1 February 2014 and was former coach of the Spanish national team.
Griezmann, who scored his 170th goal against Mallorca at the end of November, has overtaken Adrian Escudero and is now just three points away from the record. He could reach it before the end of this year 2023 where he still has five games to play with his team.
"I'm playing well and I'm full of confidence"
"I'm pretty confident," he said in a video from his club. I started the first three games normally, because I didn't take much time off. So I struggled a little bit to be mentally fresh. I'm feeling great right now, I'm playing well and I'm full of confidence. I feel like I'm important, whether it's defensively or scoring goals. To be honest, I'm very happy with my level."
All the planets are aligned to make a little more history for Atlético. "The goal record has been a challenge since I came back. Every time I score, I get closer. It's a goal, an extra motivation, and a dream come true. I keep a cool head. I'm not going to go crazy every time I score. So I'm going to stay calm, as usual, because the goals will come. »
