After winning the World Cup, Lionel Messi essentially won the trophy he was missing so that he could be considered by many as the greatest football player to ever step on the pitch. However, the Argentine superstar, by winning the US League Cup with Inter Miami, "broke" another record, as since the early hours of Sunday he has won the most titles in the history of football. Thus, CybetNews has the list of the 10 footballers who have the most trophies in the history of the sport.

The "guardian angel" of the "Dragons" celebrated championships and international titles with Porto, as well as in the shirt of Barcelona as a result of which he has 34 titles in his possession.
8. In eighth place are two football players. The reason for Cristiano Ronaldo and Kenny Dalglish, as both have celebrated 35 trophies. For the Portuguese, words are unnecessary, as a few weeks ago he celebrated another trophy, this time with Al Nasr's shirt, winning the Asian Champions League.
7. On the other hand, the legendary Scotsman of Liverpool celebrated trophies with Liverpool, while the same happened with the Scottish team as he celebrated several trophies with the Celtic jersey.

In the 24 years that she wore her jersey, she celebrated both domestic and international titles as a result of which she is almost in the middle of the list with 36 titles.
5. Another player from Barcelona of the 2010s makes the list, as Gerard Pique is one of the players whose name has been linked to the biggest club in the club's history. Together with Puyol and other central defenders, he won dozens of titles with the Blaugrana, reaching 36 by the time he retired.

2. Dani Alves. Dani Alves "fell" in second place, as he was previously at the top with 43 titles. The Brazilian great full-back found himself in historic teams, as his name began to be heard when he was a starter in the great Sevilla, which in the period of 2006 to 2008 was considered by many to be the best team in the world, with players such as Canute, Jesus Navas, Dragutinovic, Adriano . So, he then became Barcelona's main right-back and conquered everything with it.
1. Lionel Messi. The great superstar has created his own legend that is hard to beat. It was the beginning and the end of the great Barcelona, he won all the titles he could, while now with the Argentine national team he has done the same. He played for Paris Saint-Germain for one year, while his last title so far came with Inter Miami, with the Argentine having won 44 trophies, a feat unmatched by anyone else in the sport's history.
