The Belgian is often compared to the two superstars, but says he has realised he'll never score as many goals as Messi and Ronaldo in his career.

"I often ask myself what I can do to become like Messi and Ronaldo and score 50 or 60 goals in a season," he told Sport/Foot Magazine.

"I try, of course, but I realise that I will never be a true scorer. It's not in me. It is mainly mental.

"At 2-0, not thinking that is enough, for example.

"Sometimes I still think, after a goal, 'that's enough'.

"I'm not in search of records like some other players. If I can score between 15 and 20 goals each season, I will be very happy.

"I'm at a peak of my career but I want to become even better every day. I'm not there yet."
