Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta believes there is no such thing as a perfect player in the game.
The Spain international is seen as one of the best players in the world, and is in the running to win the 2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or, alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
But Iniesta remains humble and does not see himself as a star and said he was still focused on improving.
“There isn’t such thing as a perfect player. Everyone can improve and things can be done better,” Iniesta told BBC Sport.
“I rate myself as someone who enjoys the learning process and someone who tries to be better every year.
“Perfection doesn’t exist. There are players who are close, but it’s almost impossible to be perfect. If that were the case, there wouldn’t be evolution in football.
“I don’t think I’m a star. I consider myself as a footballer who tries to improve by doing things well. And that’s how I rate myself. It’s not about saying ‘now I’m good’ or ‘now I’m bad’.
“As you grow up you learn about things, and what really makes me happy is when I feel I’ve improved year after year, and I hope this feeling can go on and on.”
Iniesta has made 18 appearances for Barca so far this term, scoring three goals.
