Ramos responds to Griezmann's gloat

News

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.

The claim was made in reference to winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup, in which the Atleti star was left flabbergasted by having no French representatives up for the prestigious honour.

However, Ramos didn't hold back after being pressed about the Frenchman's bold comments, insinuating he should remain humble and remember the legends of the past.

"Ignorance makes you very bold," he told the media, according to ESPN FC.

"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.

"Everyone is free to express their opinion, but I think he should take the advice of (Diego) Simeone, (Diego) Godin or Koke, who represent the values that serve them (Atletico Madrid) well.

"I have always said that he is a great player and I wish him the best."
