Lionel Messi after winning the Finalissima against Italy at Wembley achieved his 38th. title as a footballer

Lionel Messi after winning the Finalissima against Italy at Wembley achieved his 38th. title as a footballer surpassing the Brazilian Pelé, with 37, and Dani Alves, also born in Brazil, who with 42 is the greatest winner in history.

Rosario, who has won more than Pelé and his former Barcelona teammate, the Spanish Andrés Iniesta, both with 37, has 34 titles with the Catalan team, three from Argentina and one with PSG

Some lists consider 40 titles for Messi, but the U-20 World Cup should not be considered, because he is a youth, and the 2005 Spanish Super Cup, because Rosario did not play that match, Globo Esporte said.

Messi won 10 leagues with Barcelona, 7 Copas del Rey, 7 Spanish Super Cups, 4 Champions Leagues, 3 FIFA Club World Cups and 3 European Super Cups, while with Argentina he has won an Olympic gold, Copa América and the Finalíssima, and with PSG a French League.

The most successful soccer players in history are: Daniel Alves (Brazil) 42 titles, Lionel Messi (Argentina) 38, Pelé (Brazil) and Andrés Iniesta (Spain) 37, Gerard Piqué (Spain) 36, Maxwell (Brazil) and Ryan Giggs (Wales) 35 and Víctor Bahía (Portugal) 33.
