“There is always room for improvement. If you interview Messi now he will tell you that there is always room for improvement. None of us will ever be perfect and I always work hard. I stay behind at training. I know I have to improve in lot of things and for me it’s just about improving,” said Klate.

“Obviously shooting and getting in right positions at the right time and obviously working a little bit on free-kicks as well. It’s just about perfecting things because it’s not a lot of my weaknesses, but there are moments in the game when you have to have quick feet and that’s what training is for,” added Daine Klate.
