Highly visible since the start of the season, Antoine Griezmann is no less a big fan of another player in La Liga.
On the verge of entering a little more into the legend of Atletico Madrid by becoming the top scorer in the history of the Colchoneros, the Mâconnais being only three lengths behind Luis Aragones’ mark, Antoine Griezmann is experiencing a dream start to the season with the Madrid club. Most often repositioned in midfield, the French international displays astonishing statistics with already 13 goals and 3 assists in 18 matches in all competitions.
And if some already imagine him winning the title of best player in La Liga, Antoine Griezmann will have to deal with a strong competitor in Jude Bellingham, author of the sparkling debut with Real Madrid. But when it came time to name his favorite player of the moment, the Frenchman made no mention of the Englishman, who was the top scorer in La Liga with 11 goals and who he explained to draw inspiration from in his new role in midfield.
Questioned by CultoFootball, Antoine Griezmann in fact favored Aleix Garcia, the playing master of Girona, the surprise team at the start of the season. The 26-year-old Spanish international has a lot to do with the good results of the Catalan team and is also watched by several European big names, including FC Barcelona but also Atletico Madrid. Under contract until June 2026, the former Manchester City player has a market value estimated at 25 million euros.
