Injured Dimitri Payet's tearful exit from Europa League final

Injured Dimitri Payet's tearful exit from Europa League final

The Europa League is Griezmann's second trophy in his four seasons with Atletico, having previously won the Spanish Supercopa in 2014.

"This was just confirmation of what Griezmann has been doing year after year", said the Argentine.

The final scoreline mirrored Atletico's last Europa League final win over Athletic Bilbao in 2012 and cemented their status as one of the most consistent teams on the continent since Simeone transformed their fortunes. "Keeping at it, keep working hard and it will bear fruit".

Several Marseille players were in tears at fulltime, undone by a player who was rejected by several French clubs as a youth because of his diminutive stature.

Some Atletico fans fear Griezmann's heroic display was a farewell performance, and Simeone says he will accept the Frenchman's decision if he opts to leave.

"I hope that he is happy to play for us". They soak it up and wait for you to make a mistake, and when you do, it is usually Griezmann who is there to pounce.

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

Marseille: Steve Mandanda 4, Malang Sarr 5, Adil Rami 5, Luiz Gustavo 5, Jordan Amavi 5, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa 4, Morgan Sanson 5, Florian Thauvin 5, Dimitri Payet 6, Lucas Ocampos 5, Valere Germain 5.

The French club's hopes faded after Payet went off injured in the 31st with what appeared to be a thigh injury. "You can't fall behind against a team like Atletico".

Marseille continued to dominate for much of the first half, however, they were unable to take control of the tie as Jan Oblak was equal to much of the Ligue One sides efforts.

The game carried on regardless, with Rudi Garcia's side well beaten.

With Liverpool coming up against Real Madrid in the final big game of the season - next week's Champions League showdown in Kiev - this certainly bodes very badly indeed for the Reds.

However, it was Payet's decision to touch the trophy before kick-off that many supporters believe sealed Marseille and Payet's fate. "We lost two Champions League finals, one in the last minute and one on penalties".

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

'He gave me all he had.

'They had that embargo put upon them which obviously pushed back Diego Costa's time when he could actually start playing for them and I think it was that window he was possibly going to go. I didn't want to miss out. "I dedicate this to all the fans that came here and all the ones that are waiting for us in Madrid".
