Atletico Madrid fans group warns Griezmann: Your image has seriously deteriorated

The president of one Atletico Madrid supporters' group has warned Antoine Griezmann not to expect a warm welcome back.

There remains a section of the Atletico support unhappy with Griezmann over the way he left for Barcelona two years ago.

Now that he has returned on-loan, Eduardo Fernandez, president of the Atlético de Madrid International Peñas Union, told L'Equipe: "A part of the public will whistle and insult him, that's for sure. When his name is announced and as soon as he touches the ball.

"There is a disenchantment. Before, he was our idol. Now he's just a player like any other. He doesn't represent much anymore. His image has seriously deteriorated. We're all still hurt by what he did. Time is going to see our pain heal. He will have to regain our trust and our love.

"It is up to him to be forgiven and to redeem himself. How? 'Or' What ? By sweating the jersey and scoring. When he sets important goals, little by little things will get back to normal. Because he can once again become the great player he was, I am convinced."
