Griezmann: Lemar offers Atletico Madrid something we were missing

Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann has welcomed France teammate Thomas Lemar to the Metropolitano.

Lemar signed for Atletico in the summer from AS Monaco.

Griezmann told L'Equipe: "He is 22 and what he does at his age is tough. We need a good last pass, it's our weak point, he'll bring us that.

"He started as a starter, he is already an important player. It is also up to us to help him, especially when he is a little less inside, which is normal during a period of adaptation.

"He may have a dip in October, for example. It's up to us to be there. He's in good hands."
