France star Antoine Griezmann insists he deserves to be on the podium for this year's Ballon d'Or after winning the World Cup and big silverware with Atletico Madrid. Griezmann came third in 2016 in the voting behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the most prestigious individual award in football, despite not winning anything.That year was agonizing for the forward as he lost the Euro 2016 final with France and the Champions League final with Atletico. UEFA gave their award for the best player of last season to Luka Modric, skipper of the Croatia side that reached the World Cup final and a Champions League winner with Real.The Ballon d'Or award was run jointly by FIFA and magazine France football until the end of 2016, since when world football's governing body have reverted to giving out their own prize.
