Flamengo fullback Luis: Griezmann lost motivation at Atletico Madrid

Flamengo fullback Filipe Luis believes Antoine Griezmann wasn't giving his all for Atletico Madrid last season.

Griezmann left for Barcelona last summer.

And former Atleti defender Luis told Marca: "I understood it.

"He'd been there for a few years and wanted something knew. He gave a lot to Atleti and returned everything the club invested in him.

"Being at the same place for a long time can lead to comfort that no longer motivates, so we all understood him and remember him fondly."
