But seriously, how did you expect Steven Gerrard to react to those Antoine Griezmann to Man United rumours?

Yep, predictable


Try as he might to play it down, Antoine Griezmann’s name continues to be linked to Manchester United.

With the end of the season in sight, talk of a move to Old Trafford for the French international isn’t likely to fade away, either.

One man that most certainly doesn’t want to see him plying his trade in Manchester by the start of next season is former Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard.

On punditry duty for BT Sport, Gerrard joined Rio Ferdinand and Des Kelly to talk about the game between Leicester and Griezmann’s Atletico Madrid.

“Me and Rio, the first thing we spoke about tonight when we met up was Griezmann,” Gerrard began.

“I think he’s one of the best players at finding space and gaps and hurting teams.”

When Ferdinand and Gerrard were asked by Kelly where they’d advise Griezmann to go if they were his agent, the 36-year-old’s response was simple:

“As far away from Manchester as I can find,” he said.

Leicester trailed Atletico, last year’s beaten Champions League finalists, by a single goal heading into the second leg. Griezmann was responsible for it, converting the penalty he had won for a Marc Alrbrighton challenge that had appeared to take place outside of the area.
