Messi Won't Swap Barca Trophies for World Cup Win

Barcelona striker Lionel Messi he insists he wouldn’t swap any of the trophies he has won with Barcelona in order to lift the World Cup with Argentina.

Success with the Albiceleste at the international level is the only gap on Messi’s illustrious CV.

Despite being his country’s all-time leading scorer he has yet to win a trophy with the senior side, with his only international honours the U20 World Cup in 2005 and a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The 32-year-old has won a club-record 34 trophies with the Catalan side, including ten La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.

When asked whether he would swap that haul for one World Cup trophy with Argentina, Messi insisted he wouldn’t change a thing.

"I would've loved to be a world champion," Messi told TyC Sports. "But I don't think I would change anything else in my career to be one.

"This is what I was given, what God gave me. It is what it is.

"I couldn't dream of everything that I experienced after. It was far bigger than anything I could've imagined." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
