Atletico Madrid to earn €27M from winning the Europa League

Torres fulfils childhood dream in Europa League final

He was still in England when Atletico snapped a 14-year trophy drought by beating Fulham 2-1 to win the 2010 Europa League and was at Chelsea when his former club won five trophies in two years under coach Diego Simeone, the crowning jewel being the 2014 La Liga title.

The France global, who was linked with a move to Manchester United last summer before opting to extend his contract with Atletico, said that his standing in world football was down to the coaching of Diego Simeone.

Griezmann now has 29 goals this season, although it was Gabi's late strike that sealed the victory.

"I've been here four years, and I have enjoyed today with the fans, the people of the club, my relationship with them is strong, which is why I give everything on the pitch".

"I am sure we will be the same and I'm sure we will return to another final to try to win again", he said.

And Marseille suffered another early blow when Captain Dimitri Payet had to go off injured. "This was my dream, to win with my team and I've been able to achieve it". "Atletico are a great team and we have no reason to be ashamed of this loss".

Facebook suspends around 200 suspicious apps of "thousands investigated"
Social network Facebook has suspended nearly 200 applications for access to a large volume of personal user information. Facebook has announced that in its investigation into other apps that may have misused user data is in "full swing".


"He has a contract and we want him to stay". "Simeone has taught me a lot, he made me become a better player and I hope I can keep improving every year, in every game".

It looked like they might just catch the Spanish side off guard and they nearly did but Payet's defence-splitting through ball couldn't be finished off by Valere Germain. "We lost a great player at set-pieces, if there's one part of the game where we could have been unsafe, it would have been set- pieces". "I hope he stays".

Payet appeared to aggravate a recent thigh injury and was replaced after 31 minutes.

Marseille struggled to contain their opponents for the rest of the half, although substitute Kostas Mitroglou, once of Fulham, hit the post late on with a terrific towering header.

"We missed our chance in the first half", Garcia added.

"They are an attacking team they work very well but we focused on our game, which was to defend well, be a tough team and take advantage of their mistakes", Griezmann told reporters. "Atletico you deserve the world".
