Atletico Madrid player, Antoine Griezmann, has shown his desire to win the 2018 Ballon d’Or award. Griezmann was shortlisted for the 2018 Ballon d’Or last month.
The 27 year old striker while speaking on the possibilities of other players winning the Europe topflight individual prize, stated that he hopes to win the award.
Griezmann stated this after France’s 1-0 victory over Uruguay on Tuesday in an international friendly encounter.
“I want to win it [Ballon d’Or] too,” Goal quoted Griezmann as saying after France defeated Uruguay.
When asked if he felt obsessed with the prize, Griezmann responded: “No that is a problem with France.
“People there do not like when you seek something for yourself individually, but I’m proud to be there and hopefully I will win it.
“Of course, there are other people who can win it and they deserve it too, so let’s see what happens.”
Griezmann had called for the Ballon d’Or to be given to a member of the France 2018 World Cup-winning team.
