Atletico Madrid and France forward, Antoine Griezmann, has expressed his disappointment, after he failed to win the 2018 Ballon d’Or prize on Monday.

Griezmann finished third behind winner Luka Modric and runner-up Cristiano Ronaldo.

It comes off a year that saw Griezmann win silverware twice, first with Atletico Madrid in the Europa League in May and then with France in the World Cup.

“When I learned [I didn’t win], you didn’t want to be at home with me the first two days (laugh).

“No, it’s a great pride to be on the podium, to be a world champion.

“I’m counting on the team-mates in the club and the national team to be in Luka’s place in the future.

“I won an Europa League, a World Cup – what else I have to do, I do not know,” Griezmann said.
