Is Leo Messi the most successful?

By winning the French Super Cup against Nantes, Lionel Messi added another trophy to his trophy cabinet, his third in 2022 (he had already won the Ligue 1 title with PSG and the Finalissima against Italy with Argentina).

The Ligue 1 had been his 11th title of local competition, knowing that until today he won 10 times La Liga with Barça: 2004-2005, 2005-2006, 2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2012-2013, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019.

To those 10 titles must be added another 25 in other competitions with Barcelona: he won the Champions League four times (2005-2006, 2008-2009, 2010-2011 and 2014-2015), the Club World Cup three times (2009, 2011 and 2015) and also the European Super Cup three times (2009, 2011 and 2015), as well as eight Spanish Super Cups (2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2016 and 2018) and seven Copas del Rey (2008-2009, 2011-2012, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018 and 2020-2021). He now adds the French Super Cup.

Finally, we must add his four championships with the Argentina National Team: the 2005 Under-20 World Cup, the 2008 Beijing Olympics and his double celebration with the Major: the 2021 Copa America and this Finalissima.

The Argentine star has now accumulated 41 official titles throughout his career, adding up his achievements in club and national teams (senior and youth).

The player with the most trophies in history

Messi is now the player with the second most championships won of all time, now ahead of his former teammate Andrés Iniesta and only behind another former teammate, Dani Alves, who has won no less than 48 titles.

At the top of the list remains Alves who won La Liga six times (all with Barcelona), five Copas del Rey (four with Barcelona, one with Sevilla), five Spanish Super Cups (four with Barcelona, one with Sevilla), four European Super Cups (three with Barcelona and one with Sevilla), three Champions League (all with Barcelona), three times the Club World Cup (always with Barcelona), two UEFA Cups (both with Sevilla), two Ligue 1 (PSG), two French Super Cups (PSG), two Northeast Cups (Bahia), one Italian League (Juventus), one Italian Cup (Juventus), one French Cup (PSG), one French League Cup (PSG), one Paulista Championship (Sao Paulo) and one Campeonato Baiano (Bahia).

To that, we must add his six titles with the Brazil National team: two America Cups, two Confederations Cups, one U-20 World Cup (Brazil) and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
