Atletico Madrid Win Third Europa League Title

Atletico Madrid Win Third Europa League Title

Following Atletico's routine 3-0 victory over Marseille in the Europa League final last night, Diego Simeone's managerial stats have gone viral and for good reason.

Antoine Griezmann was the hero for Atleti as the France global striker scored twice.

Atletico Madrid has won three Europa League titles, including the 2009/2010, 2011/2012 and the 2017/2018 editions.

Atletico's triumph comes after agonising defeats to Real Madrid in the Champions League finals of 2014 and 2016.

While reacting to Fernando Torres lifting the cup with the team, Simeone said: "I've never given him anything. I hope I can continue to win more trophies".

But the France worldwide is linked with a move to Barcelona in the close-season despite being contracted until 2022.

The forward has been vocal on his future in recent weeks, with Griezmann claiming he's in talks with Atletico over his plans. "I want to enjoy this with the fans".

Marseille had wasted a chance to take a fourth-minute lead when Valere Germain skewed his shot wide with only Jan Oblak to beat. "In the second half they raised their level and the best team won".

Marseille now face a battle to qualify for next season's Champions League on the final day of the Ligue 1 season, while PSG have nothing left to play for a 2-0 loss at home to Rennes. "Whatever he decides I'll be happy because he has given us his life".

And Gil Marin says Griezmann should snub United and Barca this summer, however, the Atletico chief admits he has no idea where his star man's future lies.

He celebrated both goals with an energetic celebratory dance from popular video game Fortnite.

Garcia added: "I chose to start Dimitri, one of our best players".

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