Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos delivered some strong quotes about Atletico de Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, who recently said that he is now “level with Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar.”

“Ignorance is bliss, whenever I hear this kid speak I think of the likes of Totti, Buffon, Iker, Raul, Iniesta, Xavi and so on who have teir homes full of trophies and don’t have a Ballon D’Or,” said Ramos. “He should pay attention to men like Cholo, Godin or Koke. I’ve always said he’s a good player,” he added.

Griezmann posted the following Instagram Story and that’s probably why Ramos decided to take some revenge.

Ramos doesn’t consider Griezmann an elite player and he probably has a point, even though the Frenchman is a star and a very good player. This will add some fuel to the Real Madrid-Atletico de Madrid rivalry which is already fairly hot, even more so after Atleti managed to conquer the UEFA Super Cup over their neighbors this past summer.
