'Griezmann can reach Messi/Ronaldo level'

Griezmann, 27, is widely considered as one of the best attackers in LaLiga due to his goal-scoring exploits at Atleti but has been cast in the shadow of Messi and Ronaldo.

His record of 109 goals and 38 assists in 202 games for Diego Simeone's side may not match up to the standard of the iconic duo who've shared 10 Ballon d'Or awards over the past decade.

But his influence has been telling for the second-placed side since arriving in from domestic rivals Real Sociedad in 2014.

However, the France international has yet to win a major honour - having arrived at Los Rojiblancos a season after they lifted the LaLiga title and finished runner-up in the UEFA Champions League

"To be considered at the level of Messi and Cristiano, he is missing titles," Torres told Cadena SER. "I hope he gets them at Atletico."
