Antoine Griezmann is a French football player that plays for the club Atlético de Madrid and the French national team as a forward.
Antoine was born in the province of Maçon, where he began his football career. He embarked on trials with some professional football teams that rejected him for his size. The Spanish club Real Sociedad scouted he and offered a youth contract, that he and his family accepted to make his dream come true: to be a football player.
On 2nd September 2009, Antoine made his professional debut in a match versus the Spanish club Rayo Vallecano. On 8th April 2010, he signed his first professional contract with the Real Sociedad. A lot of big clubs show interest in hiring the player, but he doesn't forget who gives he all.
But, on 28 July 2014, Antoine signed with the Spanish club Atlético de Madrid for €30 millions.
He has won some trophies in his career:
· 1 Second Division (2009-10).
· 1 Spain SuperCup (2014).
· Ballon d'Or – Third place (2016)
· LaLiga Best Player (2016)
· UEFA Team of the Year (2016).
Moreover, Griezmann, features on the cover of the important videogame FIFA 16 Leo Messi. He was considered the best player of the continental competition EURO 2016. I hope that this player will be one of the best players in the world for many years!
