When Grzemann moved to Atletico in 2014, he was a big fan of Uruguay because of the strong relationship he had with Carlos Bueno during his career at Real Sociedad. Bueno was the reason to convince Grisman to drink a drink “Mitt,” a traditional tea in South America, and prompted him to encourage the club Penarol. Grisman had a “dead” drink with Goodin, and commented: “It’s a popular drink I love.”
“They will play carefully, they will put pressure on the referee, that’s what we are doing at Atletico Madrid,” he said. “We have to get used to this situation, the game will be stifled, we have to be calm but with the pressure on their defenses.” Uruguay striker Luis Suarez responded to Grisman’s comments by saying, “For everything he says is half Uruguayan, he is French. He does not know how it is when she has Uruguay nationality.”
