He began dating her in 2011, before they subsequently tied the knot in 2017.

In his autobiography, entitled Getting to the Top of World Football, Griezmann admitted that it took a while to win Erika over.

He wrote: “Erika was studying in a school next to where I trained, we crossed roads a couple of times and we began to text each other.

“For a year and a half, I sent her messages, I tried to seduce her.”

Griezmann, 31, would eventually be successful – with the happily married couple now having three children together.

Erika, a qualified child psychologist, has cheered him on to numerous successes, including glory at the last World Cup in Russia four years ago.

She was by his side as he moved to Atletico Madrid and then Barcelona, in a stunning £108million deal.

Griezmann’s wife appeared to be pleased when he made his return to Atleti in 2021.


At the end of the year, she took to Instagram to reveal her joy at “going home” alongside a snap of herself and Griezmann.

The 32-year-old wrote: “Goodbye 2021… Thank you for the learned, for having let us expand the family and for having returned us to where home is and with whom home is.

“It hasn’t been the best year, probably for anyone, but we’ll still know how to get the best of you.

“2022, we’re looking forward to you.”

Griezmann is looking to end this year by becoming a two-time World Cup champion.

He has gotten his quest off to the perfect start, helping France to victories over Australia and Denmark – becoming the first side to book their place in the last 16.

Les Bleus are next in action on Wednesday when they face Tunisia.
