Ballon d’Or

'This Player Was Better Than Messi & Ronaldo In 2018'

With the winner of the Ballon d'Or set to be revealed next Monday, a high-profile manager has named the player he firmly believes had a better year than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Top Europe-Based Goalscorers In 2018 So Far

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone feels that Antoine Griezmann performed at a higher level than everyone else in the world this year, including the Portuguese and the Argentine.

"We can safely say that Cristiano and Leo are the best footballers in the world, but not in this 2018," he said, according to the Daily Express.

"At this lap, Antoine was superior to everyone, nobody did what he did for his teams.

"When a footballer makes sure that the whole team can work based on his brain, it has an incalculable value."

Griezmann won the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup with the Rojiblancos, as well as the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France, this year.
