Atletico Madrid hero Forlan raps Griezmann over Messi, Ronaldo claim

Sergio Ramos has launched a scathing attack on Antoine Griezmann's attitude after the French forward said he has his eye on the Ballon d'Or this year and is on a par with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Yes, I think I am now perceived in that light", Griezmann answered.

Now, the feud has kicked up again after the outspoken Frenchman declared he was on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Atletico Madrid forward Griezmann, a World Cup victor with France, is targeting the Ballon d'Or after the disappointment of not being nominated for FIFA's The Best award.

"Cristiano and Messi are above everyone", he told Cadena Ser.

'I'm at the top but I can get better.

"I want to improve, I want to win and I want to continue like this, playing in this way". "I'm enjoying being at this table, although I know I can do better".

Griezmann was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer transfer window, but he explained that his decision to turn down a move to Camp Nou was in part a tribute to his team-mates and head coach Diego Simeone.

Interestingly, Messi and Ronaldo have claimed the last 10 Ballon d'Ors awards and are showing no signs of quitting any time soon.

"Saying no to Barcelona shows Atletico's greatness, [coach] Diego Simeone, my teammates", he said. If it was for money, I would have gone to China.

The French forward was snubbed by Federation Internationale de Football Association in their list of the top three players in the world but Griezmann insists that his achievements will be recognised in the upcoming Ballon d'Or ceremony.

"We always have a lot of love for top players but when they are not there, you have to keep going".

Griezmann has had a good start to the season personally, scoring once and assisting twice more in four La Liga games.
