Simeone lauds 'decisive' Griezmann, urges him to stay with Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid's French forward Antoine Griezmann kisses the trophy after the UEFA Europa League final

Payet was a key figure in France's run to the Euro 2016 final, although he has not featured for the national team since a 2-1 win over Belarus on October 10.

With Payet's exit went any hope of them clawing a way back into the contest, which Griezmann and Gabi ensured was taken away from them completely in a 3-0 defeat, yet in his post-match media conference Garcia stood by his decision to start his hobbled star. I know he'll always ask the best of me, the maximum, and I'll always be there to help him and to win matches.

Fernando Torres spoke after he lifted the Europa League trophy with Atlético Madrid in his second last game with the club.

Griezmann had hogged most of the attention before the final amid speculation he is about to end his four-year stay at Atletico to move to 25-times Spanish champions Barca when his buy-out clause drops to 100 million euros.

Atletico were too streetwise and also just too good for a spirited Marseille side - with two Antoine Griezmann's goals superbly finished after naive mistakes from their opponents, and Rojiblanco captain Gabi wrapping up the scoring late on.

With Liverpool fans hoping for any possible advantage over Madrid ahead of their showdown on May 26, fans are praying none of Jurgen Klopp's players "jinx" the side as Payet appeared to. "I owe a lot to Simeone and my team mates".

Describing himself as "happy" with the outcome, Griezmann continued: "I have been working to experience such a moment for many years".

"Antoine - if he stays we'll continue to grow and develop", the Argentinian said. He's given a lot to us over the years.

"We missed our chance in the first half", Garcia added.

"It wasn't meant to be in the Champions League, but I said to myself that tonight was going to be night and so it was". "In the second half they raised their level and the best team won".

Griezmann slotting coolly into the bottom left corner in the 21st minute after being set up by midfielder Gabi's first-time pass. Marseille's woeful defending contributed, as midfielder Zambo Anguissa failed to control a casual pass out from goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and the loose ball bounced straight to Gabi.
