Griezmann ‘not thinking of Ballon d’Or’

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann ‘will give everything’ to win the World Cup and ‘does not care’ about winning the Ballon d’Or.

The 27-year-old will feature for France against Croatia in Sunday’s World Cup final while reports suggest a Les Bleus victory will put him among the running for this season’s individual awards.

“I do not care about the Ballon d'Or, I want the World Cup,” Griezmann told reporters, as cited by Diario AS.

“We have a great opportunity to win the World Cup, and the Ballon d'Or is not on the agenda.

“I will give everything I have to be a world champions and whatever follows on from that will be welcome.”
