There are few things better then when random family members get involved in sports. This time around we get Antoine Griezmann’s sister Maud getting involved in the silly season of transfer rumors.

“That’s right, Antoine is disappointed by this elimination, since one of his objectives while staying at Atletico was to win the [Champions League] in his stadium,” she said.

”But he is the same as his teammates, coach, officials and fans.

”It’s tiring to read new things every day about what my brother thinks and about whoever says they know what he’s thinking.

”The only people who have been managing my brother’s interests for two years are myself, my father, Alain, and our lawyer, Sevan Karian.

“If there is a club we are in contact with right now, it’s Atletico Madrid and no other.”

It’s safe to say I’m all for more family members getting involved in transfer rumors. Maud actually did a good job of representing her brother, but in most cases family members just make things more complicated.
