Atletico Madrid's French striker Antoine Griezmann led the charge as the Spanish side claimed its third Europa League trophy in nine seasons, downing French side Olympique Marseille 3-0 in the final in Lyon Wednesday night.
Lethal French forward Antoine Griezmann punished a defensive mistake before adding another early in the second half.
Winning the Europa League was not how Atletico planned their 2017-18 season to end, but they proved Wednesday night that they were clearly the best team in this season's competition, and a four-year wait for another major trophy is finally over.
But Atletico were hit with a transfer ban and the former Real Sociedad ace revealed he could not leave without a replacement lined up.
The Rojiblanco side's build-up to the game was dominated by talk over Griezmann's future, with a €100 million summer move to Barcelona reportedly lined up.
And this fan urged: "Jose, if you'd like, you can sign that man #Griezmann".
The France global has been persistently linked with a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano, with Barcelona reported being among his biggest admirers.
Atletico won the Europa League final Marseille with the score 3:0 and for the third time in their history have won this tournament.

"Right now I would say that the Europa League is a load of s***, even though it has given me a lot", the captain said.
"He has played three finals with us, has won two, and so that shows that he is not far away from his objective of regularly playing finals".
"I am sure we will be the same and I'm sure we will return to another final to try to win again", he said.
"I chose to start Dimitri, one of our best players", explained Garcia. "This was my dream, to win with my team and I've been able to achieve it". "This is the second, after a Supercopa, and I hope I can win more trophies".
"The goal was to take advantage of the opponents' mistakes".
The loss of their skipper sucked some of the life from Marseille's previously spirited display and Griezmann's second, four minutes after the restart, felt like being the match victor.
"They were very attacking, worked well, but we were also doing our thing", he said.
