Europa League winners Atletico Madrid have been charged with "racist behaviour" by UEFA for a banner displayed by fans during their 3-0 win over Olympique de Marseille in the final on Wednesday. "We lost one (final) with two minutes left, and another on penalties".

"Now is not the moment to talk about my future, I just want to enjoy myself after my performance, after winning a trophy and I want to celebrate with the fans", Griezmann told reporters.

The French global has finally managed to break the second place curse, beating Marseille 3-0 in the final to lift the UEFA Europa League trophy.

It turned into an evening to forget for the Frenchman as he limped off injured after half an hour in his side's 3-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid.

But with mounting speculation of Simeone leaving the club for Arsenal, Griezmann hopes he stays at Atletico for an even more illustrious career.

However, the Bayern Munich goalkeeper will be monitored during the training camp, reports Xinhua news agency. Manchester City's Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan are among the Premier League players to be selected.

If he leaves, Simeone will have to do what he does best in reshaping his team while keeping it highly competitive.

The only side to overcome them in knockout European football since 2013 are arch-rivals Real Madrid, who beat them in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals and knocked them out of the same competition in 2015 and 2017. "The truth is this was a dream for me, to win a trophy with Atletico, with [Diego Simeone] and my friends and teammates".

"It wasn't meant to be in the Champions League, but I said to myself that tonight was going to be night and so it was".

"It's not hard because I am selfish".

The three goal cushion provided by Griezmann and Gabi meant the trophy was safe, and allowed Fernando Torres to be subbed on for a cameo appearance and say his farewells to the Atletico faithful before his imminent departure in the summer. "He can't leave us", said Gabi, who scored the third goal against Marseille.
