Antoine Griezmann 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki
Antoine Griezmann was born in the commune of Mâcon in the département of Saône-et-Loire. His father Alain Griezmann, a town councillor, is from a family who migrated to France from Münster, Germany in the first half of the 19th century.
The family surname was originally spelled “Griesmann”, before being changed to “Griezmann”.
His mother Isabelle Lopes, a former hospital staff member supervising the cleaning team, is of Portuguese descent, and her father Amaro Lopes was a Portuguese footballer for Paços de Ferreira.
Amaro Lopes moved from Portugal to France with his wife Carolina to work in construction in 1957, where Isabelle was born, and he died in 1992 when his grandson was an infant. As a child, Griezmann often spent his holidays in Paços de Ferreira, Portugal.
Griezmann began his career playing for hometown club Mâcon. While there, he embarked on several trials with professional clubs in order to earn a spot in one of their youth academies, but was rejected because clubs questioned his size and lightweight frame.
In 2005, while on trial with Montpellier, Griezmann played in a friendly match against the youth academy of Paris Saint-Germain in Paris, and impressed several clubs, notably Spanish club Real Sociedad, whose scouts were attending the event.
Following the match, the club’s officials offered Griezmann a one-week trial in San Sebastián, which he accepted. He was later offered a second-week stay at the club. The club then contacted his parents and formally offered the player a youth contract.
Griezmann’s parents were initially reluctant to have their son move to Spain, but allowed him to make the move after positive reassurances.
Because Griezmann spent time at youth level in a Basque club, he is potentially available to play for Athletic Bilbao, in spite of being born and growing up in the non-Basque areas of France.
Antoine Griezmann is a French professional footballer who plays as a striker or midfielder for La Liga club Atlético Madrid and the France national team.
A versatile player, he is known for his attacking, passing and supportive defence, and has played as an attacking midfielder, winger, and forward in his career.
Griezmann began his senior club career with Real Sociedad, winning the Segunda División in his first season.
In 2014, he joined Atlético Madrid for a then-club record €30 million and won the UEFA Europa League, the UEFA Super Cup, the Supercopa de España, and La Liga Best Player. He was nominated for the Ballon d’Or and Best FIFA Men’s Player in 2016 and 2018.
In 2019, Griezmann was the subject of a record association football transfer when he signed for rivals Barcelona in a transfer worth €120 million, becoming the fifth-most expensive player of all time.
There, he won a Copa del Rey, before returning to Atlético Madrid in 2021 (initially on loan), becoming the club’s all-time third-highest goalscorer.
At international level, Griezmann won the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Championship and made his senior debut for France in 2014 at age 22; he has since earned 117 caps, ranking as France’s sixth-most capped player, and with over 40 goals scored, he is also the nation’s third-highest all-time top goalscorer.
He finished as top goalscorer and was Player of the Tournament as France finished runners-up at UEFA Euro 2016, and won the Silver Boot as the second highest goalscorer as France won the 2018 FIFA World Cup; he won the Bronze Ball as the tournament’s third best player, and was also named Man of the Match in the final.
In the 2022 FIFA World Cup, he was used in a central midfield role as the team finished runners-up.
