Antoine Griezmann insists he is happy to turn down FC Barcelona and continue his career with Atletico Madrid.

Before the World Cup in Russia, many tipped the 27-year-old to leave Atletico for the Catalan giants, but he ultimately decided to stay with the Rojiblancos.

“It was my decision to not go to Barcelona and I am proud of it, now I am excited about the year ahead with Atletico,” Griezmann told reporters.

“It is not long until I compete for the European Super Cup and we obviously will want to win that too.”

“I just want to savour this (World Cup) victory with France and the French people, then to enjoy my holiday and be able to relax.

“I am really happy and for all my teammates too, it was a wonderful experience.”
