Now Messi’s former Barcelona team mate – Dani Alves – is the soccer player with the most trophies in the history of the sport. Alves has a total of 42 titles to his name, but with Messi’s tally of 41, the man with the La Pulga nickname is close on the heels of the Brazilian.

 

How many trophies does Messi have with Argentina?

Messi has lifted four trophies with Argentina.

These are:

  • The 2005 FIFA Under 20 World Cup
  • The 2008 Olympic Games
  • The 2021 Copa America; and
  • The 2022 CONMEBOL UEFA Cup of Champions

One of those were for the prestigious Copa America competition which usually comprises of matches against South American teams that are played at high altitudes.

 

How many individual trophies does Messi have?

When it comes to personal honors, Messi also has an impressive collection of awards.

He has won a record total of 7 Ballon d’Or titles, which are handed out to the player with the best individual performance across a season.

You can check out our article on the past Ballon d’Or winners to see which years the Argentinian forward managed to pick up this individual award.

 

Who has won more trophies – Messi or Ronaldo?

Lionel Messi has won more trophies than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese forward has 30 titles in his club career and a sum of 32 to his name overall, which Messi clearly surpasses with his impressive tally of 41.

It would take a miracle for Ronaldo to overtake Messi’s total here, as the Manchester United man doesn’t’ have much time left at the top especially at his age.

 

Wrap up

This article has clearly answered how many trophies Messi has won over the course of his career.

Hopefully the Argentine forward will be able to pick up a few more before he retires, so that he can surpass Dani Alves’ tally and cement himself as the most decorated soccer player in the history of the game.

With the FIFA World Cup coming up, Messi will be keen to add another international title to his list of honors, as his tally at international level pales in comparison to his batch of trophies won at club level.
