Diego Simeone Boys Defeat Marseille 3-0 To Clinch Europa League Title
Atletico, who also won the competition in 2010 and 2012, took control as Antonio Griezmann scored in either half before Gabi’s late third ended Marseille’s hopes of becoming the first French team to win a European trophy for 22 years.
It is also Griezmann’s first major title as an Atletico player, and a fitting way to bow out if he leaves at the season’s end, with Barcelona tipped as his next destination.
“This is a reward for me after I left home aged 14, for all the work I have put in, the suffering,” “There has been joy and sadness, but I am so happy and I hope to be able to live moments like this again.” Griezmann, said
Atletico Madrid veteran, Fernando Torres also said that the Europa League final victory with his boyhood club was more emotionally satisfying than winning the World Cup with Spain or the Champions League with Chelsea.
Just as he's preparing to say goodbye to Atletico Madrid for a second time, Fernando Torres finally has his first major trophy with the club 🙌
