The Qatar 2022 World Cup is full of stars, although probably no one has the track record that Lionel Messi has. Ever since he started playing full-time in Barcelona, he has been the best player in the world, or at least one of them. So, let’s know more about the captain of Argentina.

Messi played most of his career in the Culés. He even arrived there when he was a 13-year-old kid, which means the majority of his formation happened in the youth divisions of that club known as La Masía. He took over as the best player in the team and he never looked back.

After 34 titles in Catalonia, including four Champions Leagues and 10 in La Liga, he moved to PSG on a free transfer in 2021. He also won championships for Argentina, as it was the most recent Copa America, along with seven Ballon d’Or. He continues breaking records with frequency, which puts him still above most.
