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.
‘No words necessary’ accompanied the fantastic picture after Griezmann’s stellar season for both club and country.
And it appears that parts of social media agree with Atletico on the issue.
