Atletico Madrid asks UEFA to quickly resolve Griezmann’s position before facing Milan

Spanish press reports revealed a state of great dissatisfaction with the management of Atletico Madrid, led by Argentine Diego Simeone.

Because of the ambiguity of the penalty that will be imposed on Frenchman Antoine Griezmann after he was sent off during the Liverpool match, which was held at the “Wanda Metropolitano” stadium in the Spanish capital, Madrid.

In the third round of the European Champions League group two matches about a month ago.

According to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”, Diego Simeone wants to know how long his attacker will be punished.

Especially since Atleti has two important Champions League matches against AC Milan, the first in the Spanish capital in eight days, and the second in Milan.

Griezmann was expelled in the Liverpool match after violently entering the Reds striker Roberto Firmino in the second half of the match, which led to the referee’s publicity of the red card and his expulsion directly.

Griezmann starred in the Champions League with Atletico Madrid so far this season, scoring three goals in 3 games, but he scored two goals and made only one of 12 matches in the Spanish League.

The Spanish newspaper pointed out that Atlético Madrid was surprised that the penalty had not been announced so far, and called on the European Football Association to resolve the matter so that the technical staff can identify its situation, whether by suspending one or two matches.

In a related context, the Englishman Kieran Trippier, right-back of Atletico Madrid, will be absent for more than a month due to a sprained shoulder in the third degree, after he fell on his shoulder during his team’s match against Valencia last Sunday in La Liga.

The Madrid club confirmed in a statement last week that the player suffers from a “third-degree sprain in the left shoulder joint”, after x-rays he underwent in a Valencia hospital, and then in a Madrid hospital.

The Atleti statement added that Trippier “will undergo rehabilitation sessions and physiotherapy, and the date of his return to group training will be determined according to his response to the treatment.”
