How many trophies has Lionel Messi won in hicareer?
Very few players can match the illustrious trophy cabinet of Messi...
Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the best players in football history. A product of La Masia, Barcelonas famed youth academy, he made his senior team debut at just 17 years, three months, and 22 days against Espanyol on October 16 in 2004 in a La Liga fixture. His first trophy was the La Liga title that Barcelona won in 2004-05 under manager Frank Rijkaard. Whereas he won his first UEFA Champions League title in 2005-06 after Barcelona defeated Arsenal in Paris.
But Messi did not play in the final as he was nursing a hamstring injury that he sustained against Chelsea in the Round of 16. He was so dejected that he was not even seen on the pitch celebrating with his teammates after the win, a decision which he later went on to regret.
In 2009, he won the sextuple with Barcelona as the Catalan club won all competitions that they participated in that year. In 2015, he won another treble but missed out on the sextuple as Barcelona were beaten by Athletic Bilbao in the Supercopa de Espana. His final trophy in Spain came on April 17, 2021, as the Balugranas won the Copa del Rey beating the Basque-club 4-0, in which Messi scored a brace.
