Enrique Cerezo, president of Atlético de Madrid, expressed on Wednesday that "more than angry", he is "disappointed" with the departure of the club Antoine Griezmann, of which he said that he "had a great future" in the rojiblanco team, while affirming that he respects "his decision" and wished him "all the luck of the world".
"More than angry, I am disappointed, I think Antoine had a great future at Atlético, with great titles and great championships, the problem is that each person thinks differently, we respect his decision, I and all the athletes. Some will leave and others will come, "he told Fox Sports, according to the chain's official website.
Cerezo admitted that it has been "a surprise". "It's a disappointment, if I had been his advisor I would have told him to continue here, life is free and everyone does what they consider appropriate," he added.
