Snapshot: Lionel Messi Kills Bit Of Time By Emptying Out His Impressive Trophy Cabinet…

By Chris Wright

Given that he’s been told to stay off his feet for the next 6-8 weeks while he nurses a groin twang, here’s Lionel Messi, at home, killing some time by fetching his fairly significant trophy haul out of the cabinet to give them a good polishing…

What you’re looking at there is – among other things – four (consecutive) Ballon d’Ors, six La Liga trophies, three Champions League winner’s trophies, one Best Player in Europe award, two Golden Boots (of the three he’s won), two Copa del Rey trophies and many various other Super Cup trinkets.

Not bad. Indeed, the little bugger has even ‘accidentally’ left one of his lesser awards in the cabinet just to illustrate how many of the things he’s amassed over the years! No-one likes a show-off!

Which, conveniently enough, brings us on to our next order of business…

As is his wont, Leo’s older brother Matias duly posted the photo above to his Twitter account along with a chart to show the comparatively scant trophy haul Cristiano Ronaldo has managed in the same time period in an attempt to goad the Real Madrid super-duper-star…

We get the distinct feeling that that’s still six more trophies than Matias Messi is ever going to win, but hey ho – there’s nothing like basking in the reflected glory of your little brother’s success to satisfy a man’s soul.

Lest we forget, we’re talking about a man with a large portrait-style tattoo of his own younger sibling here…
