Atletico Madkid defender Vrsaljko: Griezmann and fans are okay

Atletico Madkid defender Sime Vrsaljko is confident Antoine Griezmann's relationship with the fans remains strong.

Griezmann clashed with the home support late into victory over Valencia on the weekend as he tried to run down the clock.

Vrsaljko believes Griezmann was right with his actions and believes Atletico fans understand what the Frenchman was doing.

He said: "It was not a bad gesture. We maintained the result and won the match. I do not think he has a problem with the fans."

The defender has just signed terms to 2021 with Atletico.

"I am very happy here in Madrid. I feel very good in the team and I want to thank the coaching staff, club and teammates for the opportunity to grow in this club. I'm very happy," he added.
