(French Professional Footballer Who Plays as a Forward)
Birthday: March 21, 1991 (Aries)
Born In: Mâcon, France
Antoine Griezmann is a French professional footballer who plays for the French national team as well as for the Spanish club ‘Atletico Madrid.’ Born and brought up in Macon, France, he was an aspiring footballer since early years. However, his genetics didn’t allow him to grow much in height and frame and hence, he was rejected by many leading clubs’ youth programmes. The year 2005, however, arrived as year of hope, as he was noticed by several major clubs, including the French professional club ‘Real Sociedad,’ while playing for the local club ‘Montpellier.’ In the 2009-2010 season, he made his debut for ‘Sociedad.’ During their pre-season campaign, Antoine proved his mettle and scored five goals in four games that he played in. Following four successful seasons at ‘Sociedad,’ Antoine finally made his move to Atletico Madrid in July 2014. His steadily good performance helped him bag another contract with Madrid in 2016, which had him staying with the team until 2021. For his national senior team, Antoine played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the Euro 2016. At the latter, he got the ‘Golden Boot’ award for being the leading goal scorer in the tournament.
