Forlan knocks Griezmann off his pedestal after Messi, Ronaldo claim

"I think the Ballon d'Or has more prestige and history", he told AS .

"His ignorance is very bold, "Ramos said to reporters at his pre-match press conference before the Roma game".

"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".

Ahead of the return of the Champions League, Griezmann was asked if he felt like he now sat at the top table alongside Messi and Ronaldo and the Atletico Madrid forward responded confidently.

The Atletico Madrid striker has been among the world's elite for several seasons and took another step towards greatness by helping France to a World Cup triumph in Russian Federation this summer.

"Saying no to Barcelona gives greatness to Atletico, Cholo [Simeone], my team-mates", he said.

Julen Lopetegui's side are chasing a fourth consecutive European triumph but they will be without Ronaldo, who scored 15 goals in last year's competition and joined Juventus in the summer.

Ballon d'Or 'on my mind', says Griezmann after FIFA snub

Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann is adamant he's as good as any player on the planet.

"We can not dwell on what he did in the past".

"We have helped each other a lot and everything is very positive so that this keeps improving". We'll always dearly love these top players, but when they go we need to move on.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, World Cup finalist Luka Modric of Croatia and Egyptian Mohamed Salah, who enjoyed a stunning campaign with Liverpool last season, were the three players nominated by Federation Internationale de Football Association for the world ruling body's top prize. "I wish him well except for the time when our paths may cross".

"I respect the opinion of everybody", Ramos said.

"Now we have to adapt to another style, we have more possession and another way to hurt our opponents and that is what we have to exploit".
