Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has named Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong as the best player he has ever faced.

The World Cup winner faced De Jong twice during the UEFA Nations League group stages and those matches have stayed with the Atletico star.

When asked by Oh My Goal who is the best player he had ever faced, Griezmann responded, “I would say (Frenkie) de Jong. Because I tried to pressure him but I never succeeded.”

The two will come face to face more often next season with De Jong joining Barcelona in the summer. You can watch the full Griezmann interview below.
