After a long season with La Liga side Atletico Madrid, star forward Antoine Griezmann seems to be enjoying his vacation in the United States as is evident by his recent Instagram posts. 

The 26-year-old Frenchman, who recently got married to his long-time partner Erika Choperena in a secret ceremony, uploaded a picture of himself wearing a La Dogers jersey on his Instagram profile with the caption “Great time with @dodgers!”

Griezmann follows sports other than football closely and often uploads videos of himself sinking three-pointers on Instagram. The French winger man was even spotted at the NBA Finals with a Boston Celtics jersey in May.

After a brief period of flirtation with English giants Manchester United, Griezmann ended speculation by signing a contract extension with the Rojiblancos and publicly apologised to their fans for fueling speculation surrounding a potential move to Old Trafford. 

The French winger enjoyed a sterling individual 2016-17 season with Atletico, scoring 26 goals in all competitions. But as a team, Atletico finished the season trophy less. The team’s lack of silverware prompted many to suggest that this would be the year Griezmann would finally move from the Rojiblancos, but his dramatic U-turn has quashed the rumour mill for a year at least.
