Barcelona star Lionel Messi believes he can still improve as a player in the wake of his four-goal wonder-show against Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League.
The Argentina international delivered a stunning display for Barca on Tuesday night as he guided the defending continental champions into this season's semi-finals.
Messi scored four goals at the Camp Nou to give Pep Guardiola's side a 6-3 aggregate victory over Arsenal and leave critics labelling the 22-year-old as the best footballer in history.
But despite comparisons to the likes of Pele, Diego Maradona and Zinedine Zidane, Messi has warned that there is still much more to come in his career.
"I'm very happy. It's always nice to score, especially in important matches," said the forward.
"I have to keep on improving. I'm lucky enough to be with a group of players that care about me a lot and say nice things about me."
