Madrid, The UEFA Super Cup takes place in
Tallinn in Estonia on 15 August, 2018, which will be exactly one month
after Antoine Griezmann and France won the World Cup final in
Despite the short time between these two dates, Griezmann is
keen to take part in that match against Real Madrid and to add a fourth
medal to his collection, one which has tripled in that past couple of
months with his Europa League and World Cup wins.
First, though, the Frenchman will have 21 days of holiday, like
the rest of the Atletico Madrid players, so he should return on 6 August
and then have under two weeks to try to regain match fitness ahead of
the Estonian Madrid derby.
Part of his holiday has already been spent celebrating the world
title, as he joined in the festivities with the team on the streets of Paris,
while he’ll return to his hometown of Macon this week.
There, he’ll join in the L’esplanade Lamartine festival and will be
presented on the balcony to his hometown.
On top of that, he has been invited to Uruguay by president
Tabare Vazquez, who was so impressed by the 27-year-old’s gesture
after the final, when he donned a Uruguayan flag in the post-match
For now, his thoughts are on continuing his World Cup
celebrations and on relaxing after a long year, before he returns to
work in Madrid, where he’ll initially train alone given that his fellow
Rojiblancos will be in Bruneck, the Spanish MARCA newspaper
