Griezmann needs trophies for Messi and Cristiano comparison - Torres

Fernando Torres, durante su entrevista en 'El Larguero'.



Atlético Madrid's Fernando Torres says that teammate Antoine Griezmann can't be put on the same level as the Barça and Madrid greats until he's won more.

If Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann is going to be considered on a similar level to Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, then he's going to have to win more titles. That's the opinion of his club teammate, Fernando Torres.

Griezmann needs trophies

It has been another fine season for Griezmann who has scored 26 goals in all competitions for Atlético – the same total he finished with last season.

The France international, who arrived at Atletico a season after the club won the LaLiga title, is linked with a move to Barca.

Torres swaps places with Griezmann.

Torres believes Griezmann, 27, would be spoken about alongside Ronaldo and Messi – if he could win more titles.

"To be considered at the level of Messi and Cristiano, he is missing titles," he told Cadena SER.

"I hope he gets them at Atletico."

Oblak is the best I've seen

Torres, who has announced he is leaving Atletico at season's end, wants Griezmann, goalkeeper Jan Oblak and coach Diego Simeone to remain at the club.

Oblak, 25, has also been linked with a move and Torres was full of praise for the shot-stopper.

"I've never seen a better goalkeeper than Oblak," he said. "I'd pay anything for him to stay."
