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.
