Antoine Griezmann has said that although he is a different player to Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, he is "at the top" in football.
The French forward felt hard done by, given that he is coming off the back of a World Cup-winning summer, and was part of the team that won the Europa League.
Griezmann saying he is on the same table than Cristiano and Messi? "Ignorance is very bold".
"When I hear this kid talk, I remember players like (Francesco) Totti, Raul, (Gianluigi) Buffon, (Iker) Casillas, (Paolo) Maldini, Xavi or (Andres) Iniesta who have won everything but not a Ballon d'Or". And I know other players are going to come for sure. I want to make them grow and I have confidence in them to make me grow'.
Interestingly, Messi and Ronaldo have claimed the last 10 Ballon d'Ors awards and are showing no signs of quitting any time soon.
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.
"I think the Ballon d'Or has more prestige and history", he told AS .
"Being at that table is a vision I have but I also know that I can do better".
"He should pay attention to men like Cholo, Godin or Koke".
"But I have always said that he is a great player and I wish him the best".
"We have helped each other a lot and everything is very positive so that this keeps improving".
Griezmann has scored just once for Atleti this season as they have taken only five points from 12 in their worst start under Simeone, but after suffering a tough period a year ago he said he believed things could turn.
