Tottenham star Gareth Bale insists he still isn't at the level of Barcelona ace Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.

For the man himself, the two giants of the Spanish League are still the ones to beat.

"Ronaldo and Messi have set the standard as the best players in the world, and everyone wants to play like them," said Bale.

"Year by year I'm improving and I can still improve."
