Today's victory over Athletic Club extends what is already a club record haul of major domestic and international titles
From winning La Liga in 2005 to winning the Copa del Rey in 2021. Everything Leo Messi touches turns to gold, and today he has won an incredible 35th major trophy in an FC Barcelona jersey. More than any other Barça player. More than any other player in Spain. Ever.
From Ronaldinho to Xavi and Iniesta. From Neymar and Luis Suárez Suárez to De Jong and Pedri … they have all played a part in Barça’s golden era of the last two decades, but it is safe to say that none have played as big a part as the Greatest Of All Time.
The win against Athletic Club today further confirms what we all know. Messi is a living museum. Just look at his trophy collection:
Liga 10 Spanish Super Cup 8 Copa del Rey 7 Champions League 4 Club World Cup 3 European Super Cup 3.
His seventh Copa del Rey is a record in the competition that he shares with team-mates Sergio Busquets and Gerard Piqué.
