Míchel: “Antoine Griezmann is the best player in La Liga.”

In quotes reported by AS, Girona boss Míchel admits he believes Atlético Madrid player Antoine Griezmann is the best player in La Liga.

Girona play Atlético Madrid in the league on Monday night and they have never beaten the Madrid side but Míchel is optimistic.

He didn’t hide the fact that Diego Simeone’s side are in their best form of the season and also praised the great form of Antoine Griezmann, but he remains confident in his team going in the fixture.

Míchel will be without the injured Callens, Yan Couto, Yangel Herrera, Ibra Kebe and Joel Roca for the match.

“Right now it’s a great Atlético team because they dominate everything. Simeone has been with the team for many years and he has players who know what they have to do. Also, players like Griezmann are in their best form of the season and this makes everything more difficult for us. But we have to play tomorrow with confidence, aggressiveness and in front of our fans. I think we can win, even if our opponents are at their best,” he said.

“It will be tough. Atlético are a great team and for me, right now, the player who is in the best form in La Liga is Griezmann. I think he is the best in La Liga.”

Atlético target García in fine form

Girona midfielder Aleix García has been attracting interest from Atlético. García has been one of the best players in the Primera División in 2022-23 and is the only Girona player to have played in all 24 league games so far. He has also started every single game this season.

García’s contract expires on June 30, but if the club stay in the top flight, he will automatically renew for another year, according to AS.
