Antoine Griezmann declared “I’m back” to Atletico Madrid’s supporters after returning to training for the first time since re-joining from Barcelona.
The France forward made the switch to LaLiga’s champions on loan for the 2021-22 season, with the option for either club to extend for a further year.
Less than 24 hours after scoring twice in Les Bleus’ 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Finland on Tuesday, Griezmann was back in training with Los Rojiblancos.
The 30-year-old delivered a personalised message via the club’s official Twitter account, saying: “Hello Atleti fans, I’m back.”

Griezmann scored 133 goals in 257 appearances during his first spell with Atletico between 2014 and 2019, before departing for Barcelona in a €120million deal.
He was part of Diego Simeone’s side that won the 2018 Europa League, two years after helping them reach the Champions League final.
