Barcelona’s last signing Antoine Griezmann has hailed new teammate Lionel Messi.

Griezmann is the latest signing at Camp Nou after the 28-year-old joined on a five-year deal.

Griezmannn says new teammate Lionel Messi is the best soccer player in the world and the face of the sport.

“For me, he (Messi) is the number one, like Lebron (James) in basketball. They’re the ideal,” the French international forward told Barcelona media on Tuesday, reports Efe news.

“Lebron is the face of the NBA, and for me, Messi is the face of soccer because he has something different that others don’t have. We can only see (such talent) every 30 years or so,” Griezmann added.

Griezmann, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner with France, also praised the La Liga champion side, saying that “all teams are different from Barcelona at the level of playing style.”

“I want to play in front of my new fans,” Griezmann said.

“I believe that they already know me, I’m someone who gives everything on the field and I’m sure we’ll enjoy together.”
