France international Antoine Griezmann has said that it would be a honour to be named the next Ballon d’Or winner. The Atletico Madrid star had a stunning year for club and country after winning the Europa League title, European Super Cup and the World Cup and this has placed among the frontrunners for the coveted prize.
Speaking to ESPN, Griezmann admitted that the Ballon d’Or remains the biggest prize of all for any player and it would be nice for him to get his hands on the accolade come December, he said: “On a personal level, that's the highest you can get. It's the most historic award, the most prestigious one. However, I also am a player who thinks collectively over individually, but it would be nice [to win it] for myself, because of everything I've gone through, especially after having to separate myself from my family at 13 years old.”
