Sergio Ramos dig at Antoine Griezmann over Messi and Ronaldo claim

Forlan knocks Griezmann off his pedestal after Messi, Ronaldo claim

Only the best players eat at this "top table" with the general consensus that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been dining there together, alone, for the best part of a decade.

Griezmann, 27, has scored 78 goals in La Liga since joining Atletico Madrid in 2014.

Real Madrid captain and defender Sergio Ramos has lashed out on Atletico Madrid's French forward Antoine Griezmann over his recent claims of being at par with pair of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as world's best player.

Atletico Madrid take on Monaco tonight in their opening match of the Champions League, giving Griezmann the flawless setting to back up his heady claims. I'm at the top but I can improve.

'There are lots of other players emerging and you have the likes of Neymar and Mbappe, but I am a different type of player and know I must continue to improve'.

'There are different ways to look at football, ' he told Diario AS.

"I saw them play, we are going to have to defend compactly", he said.

Hurricane Florence pounds Carolina coast with fierce winds, flooding
The 400 mile-wide storm's winds weakened to 70mph after it reached the coast, well below the 140mph seen earlier this week. North Carolina's governor Roy Cooper described the storm as "an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave".

"In the a year ago he was, without doubt, the best player in the world", Simeone said after naming off all the trophies and accomplishments Griezmann won during 2018. "At that table, there are nice pictures I have, and I enjoy it there, but I know that I can get better".

In contrast to FIFA's prize, the Ballon d'Or victor is determined by votes from journalists, and Griezmann described the prize as more prestigious.

"I think I already sit where Messi and Cristiano are".

Having turned down a move to Barcelona in the summer, Griezmann said he believed in the prospect of future success with Atletico.

"The squad they have doesn't have too many differences to Barça's and Madrid's".

Griezmann has scored just once for Atleti this season as they have taken only five points from 12 in their worst start under Simeone, but after suffering a tough period a year ago he said he believed things could turn.
