Atletico Madrid's Griezmann suffers sprained ankle in Champions League clash against Inter Milan

Posted : 21 February 2024

Diego Simeone, the manager of Atletico Madrid, expressed hope that the injury sustained by star forward Antoine Griezmann is no more than a sprained ankle. Griezmann, Atletico's all-time leading goalscorer and a pivotal figure with five goals in six Champions League games this season, was substituted in the 78th minute of their 1-0 defeat against Inter Milan in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie.


Simeone revealed that they are optimistic about the injury being a sprain, providing some relief amid a growing list of injuries for Atletico.


Injuries are mounting for Atletico Madrid, with defender Jose Maria Gimenez also suffering an injury a minute after halftime in the match against Inter Milan. This comes as a concern for Simeone, especially with the upcoming Copa del Rey semifinal second leg against Athletic Bilbao.


In addition to Griezmann and Gimenez, midfielder Thomas Lemar and winger Marcos Paulo are also currently sidelined. The challenge of managing the squad's fitness becomes crucial as Atletico faces multiple competitions.


Despite the defeat against Inter Milan, Simeone remains optimistic about Atletico's chances in the Champions League. He emphasized that the team has demonstrated its ability to compete and learn from the first-leg encounter.


Looking ahead to the second leg on March 13, Simeone expressed confidence that, with a better understanding of Inter's playing style, Atletico will be in top shape and ready to meet the demands of the tournament, aiming to secure a spot in the quarterfinals.
