Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has hit back at Antoine Griezmann after the Atletico Madrid striker claimed he was on the same level with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

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

Griezmann, 27, stated he should be mentioned in the same breath as Messi and Ronaldo for his achievements in the wake of his FIFA "The Best" award snub.

Griezmann, who won the World Cup with France this year, has been insistent on competing with Ronaldo and Messi where individual awards are concerned. 'It's obvious that I'm a different player to Cristiano, Messi, Neymar or [Kylian] Mbappe. And I know other players are going to come for sure. They won every title and they don't have a Ballon d'Or.

"I seek to be as complete as possible". At that table, there are nice pictures I have, and I enjoy it there, but I know that I can get 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.

"Saying no to Barcelona shows Atletico's greatness, [coach] Diego Simeone, my teammates", he said.

"Those three Champions League wins are not coincidence, you have to maintain the ambition to want to win".

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

"In the previous year he was, without doubt, the best player in the world", Simeone said after naming off all the trophies and accomplishments Griezmann won during 2018.

Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have both made strong starts to the season in Ronaldo's absence but some, including Messi, have said Madrid will still be worse off without the Portuguese.
