Antoine Griezmann scored his 100th LaLiga goal in a 1-0 over Espanyol on Saturday night. It is his 60th in the league for Atletico Madrid and his 82nd overall for the club.

The French talisman sits fourth on Atletico’s list of goalscorers behind Sergio Aguero, Fernando Torres and Diego Forlan with 81 goals for the club.

Storms off camera

He had a busy night because when he was interviewed after the game and was asked about his future, before storming off camera and saying “that’s it”. He is sick of answering questions about it as we are hearing about it. It can be construed two or three ways.

  1. He is happy at Atletico Madrid and does not want to say it again.
  2. He is annoyed that Manchester United (or whoever he was linked with) have stopped chasing him.
  3. A deal is close or is already done and he is sick of giving clues and playing games.
