To the 'Cholo' Simeone comes him on a main problem. It will have to do all the possible, of face to the next season 2019-20, for keeping to the Athletic of Madrid in the fight by all the titles in dispute in spite of having lost to Antoine Griezmann, that no only is the best player of the current staff rojiblanca but also one of the best of the history of the club.

No in vain the French attacker has annotated 133 goals in 257 parties, a remarkable figure taking into account that it neither can say that it was purely a goleador. 'Griezzy' Has carried along the last five seasons the weight goleador of the team directed by the 'Cholo' Simeone, something at all easy in a team that stands out more by his férrea defensive facet that by prodigarse to offensive level.

Griezmann Has been all these years the differential piece that has allowed to the Athletic of Madrid combine the best defence of Europe with a lethal attack, thanks to the marked goals by Griezmann as well as by the played that are born of his boots, finish or no in assistances of the French.

Although the 21 goals that has marked this season 2018-19 (15 in League, two in Glass of Rey and four in Champions) turn him into the maximum goleador 'colchonero' of the present course, keep him underneath of the figures that came starring in his four previous campaigns (25 in the 14-15, 32 in the 15-16, 26 in the 16-17 and 29 in the 17-18).

Antoine Griezmann will abandon the Athletic like the fifth better scorer of his history, to only four goals of the 137 that signed Gárate, being surpassed also by Fields (146), Escudero (169) and Luis Aragonese (170). It could have turned into the maximum goleador historical of the club if it had remained some seasons more in Wanda Metropolitan, but knew that if it wanted to change of airs had to be already.

To his 28 years, Antoine Griezmann wishes to take advantage of the best years of his career futbolística, having reached already the maturity in all the facets of the game, to conquer titles of international relief in a team like the FC Barcelona, that to day of today is the one who more sounds to receive him in the staff of face to the next seasons.

Big part of the fans barcelonista has not forgotten it, and would opt by no ficharle now that wishes to do the cases of Madrilenian earths. At the end, controversial separate, what will prevail above all else will be the sportive criterion. And in this appearance, there is not any doubt that Griezmann is one of the best players of the world. If it arrives to the Camp Nou, will be to triumph.
