For magnanimous reasons, Messi is already one of the greatest celebrated footballers in soccer history. With amazing records in his cabinet, he’s yet to touch one, which is the player with the maximum number of soccer titles in the history of the sport.
Messi is just one behind Dani Alves in becoming the player with the highest titles in football history
Following his Ligue 1 win on Saturday night, Messi currently stands with 43 trophies. That includes both clubs and national titles. Dani Alves tops the list with 44 titles. Given his present situation, being faced with a legal case due to serious allegations, it doesn’t seem he would be able to add more to this list.
Messi would have an easier task of surpassing his former Barcelona teammate and leading the table with the highest titles in football history. Wherever his next destination is, it would be quite next to impossible the superstar to not win a title or two next season. Also, he’ll be playing the Copa America with Argentina in 2024. That’s another opportunity.
16th goal for Leo on Saturday night
Saturday night saw a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg, and it was Messi’s 16th goal in Ligue 1 (21 goals in 41 games) that bagged the title for PSG.
In his Parisian career, it’s his third title. Before this, he had won two Ligue 1 in 2021-22 and 2022-23 and the Trophee des Champions in 2022. It’s going to be a super exciting thing for global fans when Messi reaches the count with the highest number of soccer titles.
Behind Alves and Messi, it’s Andres Iniesta in third place with 28 titles. The Spanish star has left the Japanese club Vissel Kobe and is willing to play for one more year at least.
