Griezmann: "The Ballon d'Or has to be won by a French player"

France Football has started their own campaign for the Ballon d'Or. Today, their cover is occupied by one of the 30 players nominated: Antoine Griezmann. The Atlético Madrid attacker, who was forgotten for The Best awards, is amongst the top 30 for the Ballon d'Or and he is aiming to be in, well, the top one. "It is the one that makes little stars in my eyes," he admitted to Movistar+ show #Vamos.

Atlético responded to the lack of a nomination for The Best with a "speechless" Tweet. He does say the Ballon d'Or has more prestige, however, and says he has it in the back of his mind. As far as his teammates such as Lucas Hernandez are concerned "Antoine deserves it," he said. "What more can he do to win it," says Godín.Griezmann has one thing going for him and that is that the award is given out by a French publication, who are already using their influence to drive their campaign.
