Antoine Griezmann apologises to Atletico Madrid teammates after 'relegation' outburst

Antoine Griezmann has apologised to Atletico Madrid teammates after his outburst last month.

"We needed to put in a game like that, I'm very happy for the team, for what we gave out on the pitch - we put in a great game.

"I'd like to say sorry because I shouldn't have come out with the comments I made, in public (in Leganés); those things have to stay in the dressing room. I shafted my team mates in public, and now I'd like to say sorry to them, in public.

" I spoke to the captains afterwards and now I want to speak out in the open. I was the first one to have a poor game against Leganés, I was angry with myself because I want to win every game. But that doesn't change anything - I shouldn't have said what I said. You learn from these things..."
