Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann is one of the best attacking players in the world. He finished third behind Ronaldo and Messi in the race for Ballon d’Or after his brilliant performances with the Spanish side and France.
The 25-year-old playmaker is heavily linked with a move to Manchester United next summer to join compatriot Paul Pogba. However, he is clearly a huge fan of Liverpool playmaker Roberto Firmino.
The Brazilian international has been in top form for the Merseysiders this season and scored a brilliant brace against Swansea yesterday. Unfortunately, he ended up losing the game because Swansea scored three.
Back in January 2016, the former Hoffenheim star scored two quality goals against Arsenal at Anfield in a game that ended 3-3. His second goal was a top finish from outside the box. Griezmann reacted to that goal with a tweet:
Ooooooooooowwwwwww Firmino !!!!!!!! #Golazo

Yesterday, Firmino scored his first goal of the game with a thumping header and the second goal was a work of a genius. Wijnaldum provided a looping ball in the box, Roberto controlled it brilliantly and then struck the ball in the net with his left foot.
Griezmann was once again in awe of Firmino and reacted on twitter by stating:
Firmino is : TOP player ?
