Lionel Messi believes he still has huge scope for improvement despite sitting at the top of world football and having won four consecutive FIFA Ballon d'Ors.

Messi is engaged in an almost constant duel with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo for the best player in the world accolade, with each having their own fierce supporters.

Yet despite having clocked up numerous achievements, Messi feels he still has much to improve, while he is also still hungry to win more trophies at Barcelona.

"Every season is a new challenge", he told the BBC.


"With Barcelona we always play for major honours and we are always asked to win them all.

"I still have a lot to learn and a huge deal to improve.

"I hope to keep performing at a high level all the way to the World Cup because we have a lot to play for with Barca, with a hard tie in the Champions League, and a very hard La Liga and Copa del Rey to deal with.

"To desire to keep winning things are my main motivation. I want to keep going and win them all."
