Antoine Griezmann demonstrated what he described as his "cold-blooded" streak in scoring two goals as Atletico Madrid crushed Marseille 3-0 in the final of the Europa League.

"We hoped that he'd be at 100 percent and we gave him a fitness test this morning".

"It was a dream of mine to win a title under Simeone and I told myself that this was my time".

"Simeone made me grow personally and professionally; I'm delighted with him and I owe him a lot, I know, so I'm very fond of him".

"I hope that he is happy to play for us".

"I was determined to take the opportunity to win one tonight".

And with Griezmann looking all but certain to move to Barcelona this summer, the French ace will need to help his side to that coveted bragging rights 2nd place, above Real in the final standings this weekend.

"I don't think it's the time to talk about my future", Griezmann said. I didn't want to miss out. "I want to enjoy this with the fans". "You can't fall behind against a team like Atletico", Marseille coach Rudi Garcia said.

"The scoreline is harsh but the better team won".

Marseille was going for a second European trophy, 25 years after winning the Champions League, but had no answer to Griezmann's mobility and finishing.

Griezmann doubled the advantage less than five minutes after the interval, Koke providing the assist for a clever dinked finish for the France forward.

His manager, Diego Simeone, was coy when asked about his star man and appears to be taking a more laid-back approach to the transfer saga. "It represents the value of hard work, a steady hand and consistency, values to be successful in life". I had lost finals, I left home at 14 to win titles and today I had the chance to win a trophy.

Four minutes into the second half, Griezmann started and finished the move for his second.

Dimitri Payet prematurely got his hands on the Europa League trophy in the moments leading up to Marseille's defeat on Wednesday night and Reds fans are now terrified there's a curse.
