Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone singled out Antoine Griezmann, Vitolo and Josema Gimenez for praise after Los Rojiblancos' 3-0 win against Celta Vigo on Sunday.

On a sunny afternoon in the Wanda Metropolitano, our side beat Celta de Vigo 3-0 thanks to Antoine Griezmann, Vitolo and Ángel Correa's goals.

"Griezmann? I always have to talk about reality, not assumptions, and the reality is that today he’s with us and plays fantastically well.

"He has a connection with very good bunch of fans. He scored a great goal, gave a fantastic pass for the second and worked for the team.

"I only speak of the present. Tomorrow is tomorrow. Costa? He was upset about the blow he’d received, but the doctor will have a better understanding [of the injury].

"It seems easy when you win 3-0, but we had to put in real effort and a great performance to win today." said the Argentine gaffer as quoted in Football-Espana

Atletico's next match will be on Thursday against Lokomotiv Moscow for the return leg of their Europa League Round of 16 clash.
