Simeone lauds 'decisive' Griezmann, urges him to stay with Atletico Madrid

"It is a dream for me to win a title".

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

Liverpool supporters are ordering their players to avoid touching the Champions League trophy before their final against Real Madrid.

However, the 27-year-old now looks set to end his four-year stay at Atletico to move to La Liga champions Barcelona, who are reportedly close to activating Griezmann's £88m release clause this summer.

"Like all the fans, I am obviously disappointed with our loss tonight". It's the OM I love to see and want to see at every game.

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

"Simeone made me grow personally and professionally; I'm delighted with him and I owe him a lot, I know, so I'm very fond of him". I hope I will be in it.

"The scoreline is harsh but the better team won".

Griezmann doubled the advantage less than five minutes after the interval, Koke providing the assist for a clever dinked finish for the France forward.

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

Describing himself as "happy" with the outcome, Griezmann continued: "I have been working to experience such a moment for many years".

The irrepressible Griezmann started and finished the move for his second, four minutes into the second half.

Skipper Gabi added a rare goal late on to secure a comfortable night at the office for Atletico, who brought on Fernando Torres in stoppage time for his final appearance for the club.

He celebrated both goals with an energetic celebratory dance from popular video game Fortnite, although he couldn't do it as well the second time around as he was quickly mobbed by teammates.
