Antoine Griezmann has appeared to dismiss Real Madrid interest as he led a “jump if you are not a Madridista” chant in the final game at the Vicente Calderon.
The La Liga side’s star striker may well be off this summer – with Manchester United still very keen – but it looks unlikely to be to cross-town rivals.
They say actions speak louder than words, and he appeared to reaffirm his commitment to the club – or at the very least, quash speculation of a move to their bitter rivals after the final game of the season.
Atletico had just beaten Bilbao 3-1 on Sunday to confirm third place in La Liga in the final ever game at the Vicente Calderon before moving to their new 68,000 Wanda Metropolitano stadium next term.
While players brought out every trophy they had ever won at the old ground, the famous chant was sung out loud by the fans.
And the 26-year-old Frenchman started to act as a conductor as he brought out the 2014-15 Spanish Supercup alongside team-mates Jan Oblak, Miguel Angel Moya and Saul.
Jumping around as he took his place on the centre circle to the chorus of “jump if you’re not a Madridista”, it earned him a standing ovation from the joyous Atleti fans for the perceived show of loyalty.
