Tottenham star forward, Harry Kane, says he uses Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as motivation to stay as the best.
Kane has continued his goalscoring exploits, netting six goals in seven appearances in all competitions.
The 24-year-old has scored 30 goals in all competitions in the last two of three seasons, notching 28 in the other season.
Kane said being compared to Real Madrid star Ronaldo and Barcelona maestro Messi gave him plenty of motivation.
“I use it,” he told reporters.
“With social media these days it’s difficult to stay away from it.
“I want to be one of the best players in the world, so when people put it up and I see I am close to those players, it is a great incentive to get closer and go to the next step.”
After scoring 21 goals in the 2014-15 season, the forward was quoted as a one season wonder. But he has gone on to prove his critics wrong.
“It’s kind of down to growing up, getting older and more mature, filling out in my body,” Kane said.
“I feel stronger holding off defenders maybe better than I was before. I eat well, I recover well. That is what it is all about.
“Your football career is a short career so you have to make the most of every week and every day. That is what I try and do and when I am old enough to retire and go and play golf that is what I will do.
“At the moment it is just about using every day, especially with the amount of games we play, to recover, eat healthy and go from there.”
