Not content with the large golden trophy, Antoine Griezmann has requested that the French Football Federation (FFF) ply their World Cup-winning national team with jewel-encrusted ‘Superbowl-style’ rings.

A flash jeweller in Los Angeles contacted Griezmann with a prototype design for the ‘World Champions’ ring, featuring red, white and blue gems and a large golden FFF logo front and centre.

Enamoured by the gaudy trinket, the striker has apparently asked the FFF to furnish the entire victorious squad because “a really big team need really big rings”.

According to RMC Sport, the jeweller responsible has sent a “commercial proposal” to the FFF, though it seems to have fallen on deaf ears for the time being:

At present, the jewellery has received no response from FFF. In the event of a negative answer, it confirms that players will be able to buy this ring by paying out of their own pocket.

Beyond Griezmann, who posted a visual of the jewel on Instagram, several players have already shown interest in the ring.

Pies advice? Spend a few quid on Kinder Eggs and you’re likely to eventually receive something of equal artistic and sporting merit sooner or later.

    Has Griezmann unwittingly revealed himself as Facebook’s very own USA Soccer Guy?

  3. Geraldo says:

    P.S. by the way Pies – Kinder Eggs are banned in the States as the small toys contained therein pose a potential danger to the safety of young children. Unlike firearms obviously…

    • VieuxSang says:

      Kinder Eggs are sold at 7-11 convenience stores on the east coast. Our firearms are not unlike Stephen Fry / Elton John / Morton Graham…questionable at the best of times, and turn your back, they will f*ck you.

    He is just a prat. I have disliked him for years and I now know why. No character whatsoever, totally full of himself, dreaming about shiny rings. Is he football’s Kanye?
