Antoine Griezmann is a massive fan of video games!

After taking a photo of himself playing FIFA 18 after the launch of EA Sports' football behemoth, the Atletico Madrid superstar has now posted a picture on Instagram of Football Manager 2018!

Sports Interactive's management simulation is set to release on November 10, but Griezmann has a head-start, and is playing as Marseille!

It remains to be seen if Griezmann will keep his followers updated on his progress through the season, but he's already got a tactic nailed down - a 4-2-3-1, with Kostas Mitroglou, formerly of Fulham, leading the line.

In real life, Griezmann has scored three goals in all competitions this season, with Atleti fourth in La Liga.

Atletico 21/20 to beat Celta Vigo

Marseille, meanwhile, are third in Ligue 1, eight points behind Neymar's PSG.
