Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi added to his trophy cabinet earlier this year. He won Ligue 1 with PSG and also hoisted the first-ever Finalissima trophy after featuring in the Argentina national team’s 3-0 win over Italy.
Messi could soon make more room for his trophy cabinet, as PSG is set to meet Nantes in the upcoming 2022 Trophee des Champions Final.
Overall, Messi will have an opportunity to win the 41st trophy of his storied career. He would then be a mere one trophy away from moving into a tie with longtime Brazilian fullback Dani Alves (42) for the most trophies won ever by a player.
Messi has had plenty of trophy celebrations over the course of his career, which include four UEFA Champions League titles and the 2021 Copa America triumph with Argentina.
For now, much attention sure will be on whether PSG manager Christophe Galtier will opt to start Messi against Nantes or decide to instead bring him off of the bench.
