Video: Antoine Griezmann, Atletico Madrid's own Zidane
Date created : Latest update :
France's star striker Antoine Griezmann is a legend among fans of Atletico Madrid, who love him every bit as much as their bitter rivals at Real Madrid love Zinedine Zidane.
But since Griezmann joined them three years ago, they have been more than a match for their wealthier, star-studded rivals.
Now fans are hoping the talismanic French striker can help them win their first Champion's League title – a feat they came agonisingly close to last season, losing to Real Madrid on penalties in the final.
Named best player in the Liga for the 2015-2016 season, Griezmann is also in the running for the next Ballon d'Or to be announced on December 13.
After "Zizou" fever, "Grizi" fever is sweeping Spain, as Marion Gaudin and Sarah Morris report.
