Antoine Griezmann: Joao Felix clashes with Atletico fan after training

Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann in Atletico vs Porto

Atletico Madrid opened their Champions League campaign with a draw against Porto on Wednesday evening.

Neither side were able to find the net as the game finished 0-0.

The game saw Antoine Griezmann make his first appearance in front of his own fans since returning from Barcelona.

But he wasn't given a very good reception at all by those inside the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

His name was booed when it was read out prior to the game.



When the Frenchman took to the pitch in the 55th minute, boos rang around the stadium once again.

Griezmann did little to answer his critics during his time on the pitch.

The hostility of Griezmann from Atletico fans is so great that some want him to suffer an injury.

Atletico were back in training on Thursday morning.

Per Cadena Cope journalist Javi Gomez, Joao Felix clashed with a fan as he left training.

The fan said: "Joao, step on Griezmann, you have to injure him, it can't be that he starts before you"

Félix replied: "You should have more respect for Griezmann".

As expected, Felix defended his teammate before driving away. 

Footage of the incident has been posted by El Golazo de GOL and you can watch it below.

Griezmann has had a less than satisfactory start in his return to the club but Diego Simeone is backing him to turn his fortunes around.

“They (the media) are making a movie and a morbid situation that clearly gives us the importance of having recovered an extraordinary footballer like him and that we can enjoy,” he said, per Sport.

“We hope that he gets better and can respond to the people that criticise him.

“He has a challenge to move forward and consequences for what happened in the past.”
