Larsson backing Atletico Madrid ace Griezmann for Ballon d'Or

Former Celtic and Barcelona striker Henrik Larsson is backing Antoine Griezmann for the Ballon d'Or.

The Atletico Madrid star has won the Europa League and World Cup this year.

And in the view of Larsson, the French forward is the most likely to claim the prize.

"Who's going to win it? I maybe think Griezmann," he said at an event for the Swedish Padel Open.

Griezmann was previously on the podium for the award, finishing third in 2016.
