Athletico Madrid striker, Antoine Griezmann has revealed that he is on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Griezmann won the Europa League and the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, he scored 23 goals for Atletico Madrid last season.

Griezmann missed out on the three-man shortlist for FIFA’s The Best award, the winner of which will be announced on September 24.

“I think the Ballon d’Or has more prestige and history,” he told AS.

“There are three months left to give everything.

“It is clear that I am a different player than Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar or [Kylian] Mbappe. I’m at the top but I can improve.

“I seek to be as complete as possible. I’m not going to score 50 goals, but I’m looking to help offensively and work for the team.

“I think I already sit where Messi and Cristiano are. And I know other players are going to come for sure.

“I want to improve, I want to win and I want to continue like this, playing in this way.”
