Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo said he was “disappointed” by Antoine Griezmann’s decision to leave the La Liga club.
Griezmann announced on Tuesday that this season would be his last for Atletico, the club he joined from Real Sociedad in 2014.
A surprised Cerezo said he was saddened by Griezmann’s decision to depart the Wanda Metropolitano, leaving what he thought was a great future for both player and club behind.
“More than annoyed, I am disappointed. I thought that Antoine had a great future at Atletico, with big titles and big league wins,” he told Fox Sports on Wednesday.
“The problem is that everyone thinks in their own way. We respect his decision, I and Atletico fans. We wish him all the luck in the world. One goes and others will come.”
