'I already sit where Messi and Cristiano are' - Griezmann

Forlan knocks Griezmann off his pedestal after Messi, Ronaldo claim 'I already sit where Messi and Cristiano are' - Griezmann

"Yes, I think I am now perceived in that light", said Griezmann in an interview with AS.

The Frenchman had suggested after his stellar year that he now sits at the same table as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that France World Cup star and Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann enjoyed a burger and a beer dinner to celebrate his side's 4-2 victory over city rivals Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup final.

When asked about Griezmann's comments on Tuesday, Ramos said: "Ignorance makes you very bold".

But Ramos hit back at the Atletico striker in his press conference before Real Madrid's Champions League clash with Roma on Wednesday evening. When I listen to this kid talk I remember players like Totti who have won everything and do not have a Ballon d'Or.

"Cristiano and Messi are above everyone", he told Cadena Ser. "Griezmann is still not at their level".

Interestingly, Messi and Ronaldo have claimed the last 10 Ballon d'Ors awards and are showing no signs of quitting any time soon. And I know other players are going to come for sure.

I don't want us to put pressure on ourselves, but yes, everything is possible. "The squad is so strong as a unit", he said. I would say that one, two, three years ago probably everyone would have thought that is a mountain we can not climb.

For Griezmann, who helped Atletico to Europa League glory as well as playing a pivotal role in France's World Cup win, FIFA's choice was unwarranted.

Griezmann also expressed his disappointment at being overlooked by Federation Internationale de Football Association for the Men's Player of the Year award in an interview with AS on Monday.

"Being at that table is a vision I have but I also know that I can do better".

"Everybody is free to give his opinion and thoughts, but this guy should let himself be advised by Cholo Simeone, Diego Godín or Koke, who have some values which could be helpful to him".

"I have always said that he is a great player and I wish him the best".

"I trust them and we contribute to each other a lot".
