The Frenchman rejected Barcelona and pledged his future to his current club in a Spanish TV programme called ‘The Decision’ but it was not well received on Twitter
Antoine Griezmann has just made an extraordinary TV appearance in which he (eventually) announced he will be staying at Atletico Madrid.
The Frenchman had been heavily linked with an £88million move to Barcelona this summer, but he rejected the Catalans in remarkable fashion.
Spanish TV station Movistar+ aired a documentary which followed his decision-making process throughout the season.
For 45 minutes, he described a mental struggle between adoration at Atletico and Champions League glory at Barca while everyone screamed at their TVs: ‘JUST TELL US WHAT YOU’RE DOING.’
Twitter was mightily unimpressed by the reveal, which came just hours before Griezmann and France play their first World Cup game against Australia.
Here are some of the best tweets.
