Babel looking to improve

Ajax attacker Ryan Babel feels he still has room for improvement, but admitted reaching Lionel Messi’s level might be a bridge too far for him.

The 25-year-old returned to his boyhood club in the off-season after previous spells at Liverpool and Hoffenheim, and he has nothing but good memories of his adventures abroad.

“A footballer mostly has his best years between 25 and 29, so I don’t think I have shown my full potential yet. We can’t all be Lionel Messi, even if we want to,” Babel told the FIFA website.

“I enjoyed my time in Germany, I definitely rate the league as it develops well and you have quite a lot of teams that play good football.

“I also had a great time in England playing for Liverpool. I think it could have been much greater if I was guided better but I have no regrets choosing to play for such a big club.

“I wish things could have been different but I still have a big connection with the club and the fans.”

Babel has netted twice in four appearances since his return to Ajax.
