PSG’s defeat against Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday makes the Coupe de France the only competition that resists Lionel Messi…
Lionel Messi realized his dream on December 18 against the Blues. After four first unsuccessful attempts, the seven-time Ballon d’Or has finally won the World Cup, a year after opening his counter with the Albiceleste at the Copa America. The one who won everything with Barça had certainly already won a few trophies with Argentina, culminating in the Under-20 World Cup and the Olympic Games.
In total, Lionel Messi has already won 42 trophies during his career, including four Champions League and ten La Liga. His record is much more modest with PSG since he has so far only won a Ligue 1 and a Champions Trophy. Above all, following the elimination of PSG against Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday, the Coupe de France remains the only competition disputed by the Argentinian that he has not won. For the rest, the native of Rosario has won everything.
At the end of the contract next June, Lionel Messi could therefore leave France without having won the Coupe de France despite two attempts. But he could have another chance next year. Because according to the Catalan press, the trend is clearly towards an extension of the world champion with the Rouge et Bleu, even if he seems to wish to wait until the end of the season to decide on his future.
