Carragher: 'Atletico Madrid should sell Antoine Griezmann ASAP!'

Posted 18 Oct 2018 by Sara Davidson.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher caused controversy last night when he claimed that Antoine Griezmann wasn't 'good enough' for a team like Atletico Madrid.

'If I were Diego Simeone, I would be looking to off-load him as soon as possible.'

'It is clear that he is not happy at the Vicente Calderon Stadium and that he is not living up to the standards of the club. There are also rumours floating around that Barcelona are willing to pay €39 million for him.'

'If I were Diego Simeone, I'd take the €39 million and drive him to the airport.'

The former Liverpool defender also went on to say that a team like Atletico Madrid should not be giving into ridiculous contract demands.

'Let him go to Barcelona. Let him be Luis Enrique's problem. There's no way that I'd let him hold the club to ransom.'

The statements from Carragher come on the back of reports that the French forward had walked out of contract negotiations with the club.
