Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone revealed he favours Neymar over his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Kylian Mbappe due to the Brazilian's superior workrate.

Before winning the World Cup with France, Antoine Griezmann's future at Atletico Madrid was uncertain with Barcelona's interest in the player.

"My son has everything to play under me, but I will never sign him", Simeone told Cadena Cope on Monday night.

Another Atletico man who has been overlooked during award season was Jan Oblak, and Simeone believes he has been hard done by.

"I read that Mbappe is more powerful and quicker than him, but Griezmann is the pilot".

The pair combined to help France defeat the Netherlands 2-1 in a Nations League match on Sunday, while Griezmann has previously spoken of his desire to win the Ballon d'Or and the belief that he has that he should be named in the top three this year.

Simeone also discussed the transfer of his former star, Thibaut Courtois who recently moved to Real Madrid.

"I swear on my kids that I never saw us losing him", he said.

The Argentinian said: "I hope that he (Oblak) renews [his contract]".

Madrid won the Champions League for a third straight year in 2017-18 with Ronaldo once again the driving force in that triumph with 15 goals in the tournament.

"He hasn't had an explanation - World Cup victor, Super Cup, Europa League, second in LaLiga, the best player in the (World Cup) final", he said.

Equally, Atletico are not worse than Madrid or Barça "from a results point of view" but "in terms of the individual characteristics of the players", even though he feels Atletico are closer to Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus this summer.

"Obviously, it disappoints a little".
