With French forward Antoine Griezmann being the talk of the town with speculations about him joining FC Barcelona next season, Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone has once again rubbished reports about star forward joining one their biggest league rivals. Atletico are second in the standings on 64 points after 28 games while leaders Barcelona have 72 after winning 2-0 at Malaga on Saturday and third-placed Real Madrid have 57.

Atletico Madrid captain Gabi has urged Antoine Griezmann to keep "playing for his life" as long as he continues to don the club's shirt.

Griezmann's goal yesterday came a minute before the break as he controlled the ball at the back post following a corner and showed some brilliant footwork to take a Celta defender out of the game before firing into the far corner.
