Atletico Madrid Respond After Antoine Griezmann Isn’t Named As A Nominee For FIFA’s The Best Award Despite Winning The World Cup, Europa League

Antoine Griezmann was controversially snubbed from FIFA's The Best award after a stellar year

Atletico Madrid have brilliantly responded on Twitter after Antoine Griezmann was snubbed for FIFA’s The Best awards despite his trophy-laden year.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah were the three nominees for FIFA’s The Best Men’s Player award while the likes of Lionel Messi and Griezmann were controversially not included.

The huge exclusion prompted outrage on social media before the Spanish side posted a photo of their star striker inside an empty Wanda Metropolitano surrounded by the World Cup trophy, UEFA Europa League title and the UEFA Super Cup.
