It was always going to be a matter of time before the the swipes resumed.
Sergio Ramos has hit back at Antoine Griezmann after the Atletico Madrid striker claimed he was on the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Griezmann helped fire France to victory at the World Cup this summer, while he has also won the Europa League with Atletico.
Ramos went for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann in his media conference ahead of Wednesday’s first group game with Roma, suggesting the player was ‘ignorant’ and hinting that he believed he was lacking respect for other top players.
Ramos was asked: ‘What do you think about Griezmann saying he now eats at the same table as [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo? He replied with a Spanish refrain: ‘Ignorance is always bold’.
Before adding: ‘When I hear this kid talking I think about Totti, Buffon, Iker Casillas, Raul, Andres Iniesta and Xavi who have homes full of trophies but never won a Balon D’Or.’
*Rubbing palm together* we await a response from the French man.
Just a month ago, Griezmann had savagely attacked Ramos after lifting the UEFA Super Cup. The Rojiblanco striker took to Instagram to share an image of him being crowned by Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
