Antoine Griezmann was entitled to his statue at the Grévin museum
Scorer on Saturday during the correction inflicted by Atlético in Seville (6-1)Antoine Griezmann moved Monday evening to the Grévin museum to inaugurate the statue in his effigy. “I’m shocked, I don’t know what to say. That’s wonderful ! », enthused the striker. Accompanied by his family, the tricolor international (117 caps, 42 goals) received honors from Stéphane Bern. The president of the Grévin academy returned to the career of the native of Mâcon and especially his epics in the blue jersey.
The enthronement of Griezmann at the museum is part of the tradition of the figures of the France team. Larbi Ben Barek was the first to appear there in 1947. Michel Platini, Zinédine Zidane, Fabien Barthez and Kylian Mbappé then followed suit.
After the retirements in selection of Hugo Lloris and Raphaël Varane, Griezmann remains the figure of longevity of the Blues (Paul Pogba returning from injury, Olivier Giroud not being sure of being selected). There is no doubt that the former Barcelona player will be called up by Didier Deschamps on March 16. He can then focus on a competition that is missing from his list: Euro 2024.
