Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has created a documentary named “La Decision”, which aired this evening on Spanish television, in which the Frenchman revealed his club for next season.

Ahead of France’s World Cup opening game against Australia on Saturday, the forward wanted to clarify his future following months of discussion as to whether he would be departing the Wanda Metropolitano.

The 27-year-old confirmed that he will remain in the Spanish capital next season following a thorough process in which he decided whether to accept a new contract offer from Atletico or push through a transfer to Barcelona.

Se Queda

It was a transfer saga that had been ongoing for months, however, this evening, Griezmann’s documentary brought to an end speculation surrounding his future.

The Frenchman ended the documentary by announcing:

“I have decided to stay.”

Atletico have been furious with the Catalan Giants’ attempts to land the forward, even reporting them to FIFA over an illegal approach in January.

Griezmann joined the club from the Spanish capital in 2014 from Real Sociedad going on to score 112 goals in all competitions for Atletico.

Poor choice

“La Decision” mirrored the documentary made by NBA star LeBron James who announced his move from Cleveland to Miami in 2010.

However, it did not go down well with many football supporters who believe that the documentary represents the disconnect between the players and fans.
