In addition to being one of the most talented forwards in Europe, Antoine Griezmann also happens to be a massive fan of football video games.

The Atletico Madrid star was involved in EA Sports' brilliant trailer for FIFA 18 back in August, and posted a picture of himself playing the game after its launch last month.

In fact, along with Bayern's Thomas Muller and Tottenham's Dele Alli, Griezmann is the cover star of FIFA 18's most popular mode - Ultimate Team.

Another game which Griezmann clearly enjoys is Football Manager, since he is regularly seen playing it whilst travelling and during his time with the France national team.


The 26-year-old has somehow bagged himself an early copy of the upcoming game and his latest Instagram post has revealed the club he looks set to use.

Which team is Grizi using on FM 2018?

Football Manager 2018 isn't released until November 10, so the fact that Griezmann is already playing it means he has a headstart on Sports Interactive's latest management simulation.


Grizi posted a picture on Instagram of the new game, where he gave his followers a glimpse into who he will be managing for the next year - but which team is it?

The club Griezmann will play as on FM 2018

Griezmann's impressive exploits at Atleti have seen him strongly linked to Manchester United in recent transfer windows, but neither of those two sides will benefit from his management.

As you can see in the image below, it looks like the France international will be playing as Marseille on the new Football Manager.


Griezmann's Marseille line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with the likes of Lucas Ocampos, Andrija Zivkovic, Kostas Mitroglou and his France teammate Dimitri Payet in the starting XI.

Why Marseille?

Not a bad choice from Griezmann. Marseille find themselves behind only Monaco and big spenders Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 at the moment.

Even though he could have opted for Atletico (or any other club), it might not be too surprising of a choice when you consider that Marseille is one of the biggest clubs in Griezmann's homeland.


Despite developing into the star of French football after his exceptional Euro 2016 campaign, he's interestingly never played a single professional game for a French club.

Griezmann is pretty active on social media, and hence is sure to keep fans updated about the progress of his Football Manager 2018 team over the coming weeks and months.
