What Happened To Antoine Griezmann When He Came On For Atletico
Fernando Torres received a wonderful reception from Atletico Madrid fans on his final game for the club, but it was very different to the reaction Antoine Griezmann got despite today's game possibly being his last in Atleti colours.
A few days after scoring twice in the Europa League final and firing Diego Simeone's side to the trophy in Lyon, Griezmann appeared to be booed by a section of his own supporters when he entered the fray at the Wanda Metropolitano, regularly getting whistled whenever he was on the ball.
Wow I feel bad for Griezmann. Stayed with Atletico because of the transfer ban, and won them the Europa League trophy.
And Atletico give him whistles in return

Griezmann is getting booed everytime he's on the ball by @Atleti fans. They didn't boo him when he decided to stay last summer because of their transfer ban did they? Man won you guys a European trophy 4 days ago!

Atletico fans booing Griezmann every time he touches the ball.
So ungrateful. He could have left last year if he wanted, but he stayed because Atleti had a transfer ban and he didn't want to leave the club in a bad situation. He also literally just won their club a trophy. https://t.co/6ygljS2Cyv

Though he was the match-winner four days ago, and a guy who stayed put when the club had a transfer ban enforced, reports that he could be heading to Barcelona in the summer have prompted Atleti fans to react negatively to him.
It's happened on a couple of occasions this term and it appears to have got to Griezmann. Today, there were reports that Diego Godin approached some fans and pulled them up on it.
This is bizarre. Diego Godín is said to have ran over to the south stand where supporters were booing Griezmann telling them to cheer the Frenchman. He also told them "he's staying, he's staying". Griezmann was said to be crying due to the boos against him https://t.co/KZz6JJwWjW

Godín se acercó a uno de los fondos del Wanda Metropolitano para pedirle a la afición que dejara de pitar a Griezmann. El delantero lo estaba pasando mal. El público reaccionó con una ovación para el francés. (La foto del momento es de @oreymarcos) pic.twitter.com/DQjtRITsbE

At the end of the day, fans are fickle...
