"If we had played with everyone at 100 percent, we could have been to the maximum and played with you before this monster".

Ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final against Marseille, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has told fans that both Griezmann and Diego Simeone will both remain at the club this summer.

He returned to the Spanish capital in 2015, with his second stint with Atleti coming to an end at the end of the season as Torres embarks on a new chapter in his career.

Captain Gabi's late strike rubber-stamped Atletico's third Europa League triumph since 2010 and gave Griezmann his first major trophy with the team. "When I went I didn't think I could and after to I came back and the dreams could be achieved and this has been taught to me by the club and I will always be grateful".

"He was decisive in the most important moment in the game. I've never given him anything for free but he represents everything we're about", the Uruguayan is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "Even without him, we'll continue to grow". "I hope he gets the send-off he deserves on Sunday". Now we are in the UEFA Super Cup, so he could play four finals with us.

The 27-year-old Griezmann, who collected the man-of-the-match award, declined to discuss whether he would stay or leave Atletico at the end of the season. "You see it every year and it's a joy to work with him because he looks for a person's weaknesses, tries to improve them and make them a more complete player", he asserted.

Cerezo's confident prediction on Griezmann also appears to have been backed up after the France star admitted he owes Simeone a huge debt.

The trophy guarantees the victor a spot in the Champions League next season, although Atletico are already assured of that thanks to their league standing in Spain, the capital side need to earn at least a point in their final league match in order to secure 2nd place in La Liga, with Real Madrid 3 points behind.

Marseille was going for a second European trophy, 25 years after winning the Champions League, but ultimately had no answer to Griezmann's mobility and finishing.
