The Spanish side will be playing in their second Europa League final under Simeone this evening as they face Marseille in Lyon.
And Griezmann believes he owes his manager a lot for the progress he has made in his career so far.
“I hope he has that sort of career because he deserves it and takes the team where he wants, at the most, among the ‘tops’ of the world. Thanks to him we are there.
“I know that he will always ask me for the best, the maximum and I will always be there to help him and to win matches.”
Simeone’s Atletico spell
Taking over as Atletico manager in December 2011, Simeone has managed 375 games for the club, leading them to five trophies.
Shortly after, the UEFA Super Cup followed with a 4-1 win over Champions League winners Chelsea, while the Copa del Rey was also won during the 2012/13 season.
The following season, Simeone then led Atletico to the La Liga title and the subsequent Spanish Super Cup, but there was also heartbreak in the Champions League as the club have lost two finals to Real Madrid and Barcelona in 2013/14 and 2015/16.
