Lionel Messi makes history in the World of Football

LONDON - Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has made history in the World of Football in the 21st century.

He is one of the biggest names in the world of football, ever. He is known for his second-to-none goal-scoring skills, his eye for play-making and his importance on the pitch.

He has been at the Camp Nou for over a decade now as a professional first-teamer. Messi made his debut in 2005 and he has never looked back again.

Since 2005, the little Lionel has grown into a legend of the game, a silent leader who inspires his team via his performances not words. He has soared to greater heights and it seems as if there is nothing more for him to achieve.

So much so that, in the 21st century, he has won more trophies than many of the major football clubs around the globe including arch-rivals Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Juventus

In total, the little Argentine has won 33 trophies, including 9 Spanish League titles, 4 UEFA Champions League titles, 8 Spanish Super Cup wins, 6 Spanish Cup titles, and 3 FIFA Club World Cup and 3 UEFA Super Cup titles each.

In comparison, arch-rivals Real Madrid, as a whole, have won 26 trophies, German club Bayern Munich have won 30, Manchester United have won 25, while Cristiano Ronaldo‘s new club Juventus have won just 18.
