Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone says that he would pick Neymar over Kylian Mbappe if given the chance to sign one of the Paris Saint-Germain duo.

"In results, no", he said when asked if Atletico were worse than Real Madrid.

Simeone was also quizzed on Griezmann, who over the past four months has become a World Cup victor with France and helped Atleti to Europa League and Super Cup glory. It's a shame that he's not among the finalist (for FIFA's The Best award). He has finished second in the Spanish League where we play Real Madrid and Barcelona, who between them are continually winning the Champions League and he was the best player in the World Cup final.

"Griezmann in this past year was the best in the world".

However, the Argentine manager, who has four points from three matches in La Liga this season claimed Antoine Griezmann had outperformed both of them over the past year. The truth is that I feel sorry for the boy, it makes you feel a little disappointed, ' he said.

He has since discussed how it was a hard decision to turn down Barca but the Frenchman, who signed a new deal with Atleti through to 2023 back in June, was always going to stay, according to Simeone.

"I hope he renews, the club works with him, when everything is signed it will be good for the club and the team".

"I read that Mbappe is more powerful and quicker than him, but Griezmann is the pilot". I always felt that I wanted to stay.

Jan Oblak is another Atleti star who has been snubbed for big individual prizes, missing out on the nominees for goalkeeper in the FIFPro World 11 awards. "Courtois would not be a starter at Atletico".
