On July 5, 2019, Atlético made an official statement on its website in which he showed his disagreement with the then conduct of Barcelona and Griezmann and urged the player to go to the entity’s facilities on Sunday in order to start the preseason with the rest of his teammates. Griezmann understood that his journey at the Madrid club was over and his departure from Atlético had all LaLiga fans on edge. Two years and a little over two months later, Griezmann appeared in Majadahonda. Happy, smiling, with the mischief of a child. First with a ponytail, later in the stadium, next to Cerezo, with short hair. He has cut his hair has been a trend in Spain in the networks. From the statement to the hairstyle, more than two years have passed in which Atlético not only did he survive the Frenchman’s flight, rather, he was proclaimed league champion.
On the morning of September 8, the media appeared full of media at the Majadahonda facilities. It had been a long time since there had been so much expectation in the Ciudad Deportiva del Atlético, Since Luis Suárez arrived there was not so much rojiblanco interest. Griezmann did not jump onto the pitch, he worked in the gym and there was not the expected image of the Frenchman dressed in short with the ball at his feet. The Frenchman had posted a video showing his joy at returning to what had been his home for five years.
The footballer did an alternative training session, changed, left the Sports City and some time later appeared in the Wanda Metropolitano, already with short hair, along with Enrique Cerezo and a shirt with the number 8. Later the club distributed more photos, with Miguel Ángel Gil and with Berta. The Frenchman made good use of the time and wanted to change his image for the highlight of the day. The hair thing is not a minor issue for him, since he changed his look on many occasions, in some as a superstition.

The rojiblancos fans were divided with the now famous haircut. In my house, the female staff was revolutionized: “He’s very handsome with that cut,” said my daughter, precisely the most bellicose when it came to forgiving what the forward did two years ago.. Over there he may have started to gain a few followers. The male side looked at him with disdain. The one that we could consider a lifelong hobbyist waits. Wait for Sunday, the game against Porto, the clash against Athletic … Wait for Griezmann to score goals, which is what he used to do before leaving. And he hopes that his many are a trend as his already famous haircut is now.
