Thomas Lemar tips Griezmann for Ballon d’Or success

For Atletico Madrid’s new signing Thomas Lemar, his France national team colleague Antoine Griezmann should win the next Ballon d’Or.

The Caribbean-born player said to Spanish newspaper Marca he hopes Griezmann can win.

“In any case, this is what I’m expecting, and what I desire with all my heart,” he told the media outlet.

For Lemar, his decision to go to Atletico Madrid was a personal choice, but he knows Griezmann had something to do with it.

“It’s clear that the talks with Antoine and with Lucas Hernandez were decisive. They talked to me about the club, telling me that it was a good chance to advance and continue with my career.”

But for Griezmann to stay in Los Colchoneros, Lemar feels he had little influence.

“I think that’s what he has to tell you. I know he was eager for me to come here and he’s happy for me to be here,” he said.

“I think we can make a lot of good things this season.”
