Atletico Madrid captain Gabi hopes his team’s Europa League success convinces Antoine Griezmann to stay at the LaLiga club.

Griezmann was the hero in Lyon on Wednesday, scoring a brace to guide Atletico to a 3-0 win over Marseille in the final.

But the France international is linked with a move to Barcelona in the close-season despite being contracted until 2022.

Gabi said the 27-year-old’s team-mates had already tried to convince Griezmann to stay and he hopes the trophy helps.

“We already told him a couple of things… he can’t leave us,” he told reporters.

“Let’s hope today’s performance convinces him to stay there.”

Asked if Griezmann – who refused to discuss his future after the win – was thinking about his decision, Gabi said: “Yes, of course.

“Otherwise he would be in another team now.”

Griezmann has scored 29 goals this season, with the Europa League crown his second trophy at Atletico since arriving from Real Sociedad in 2014.
