Lionel Messi is undoubtedly one of the most decorated players in the soccer world. He has won nearly everything that a player could ever win in their entire career. Fans are, however, curious if Messi has ever had a trophyless season.
In the 2007-08 season, Barcelona failed to win any trophies since the team was still going through changes. That was Messi’s first time in his career that he failed to win any trophies with the club.
Although in the same year, the Argentinian won gold in the Summer Olympics with his national team. Thus, the medal could be considered the player’s achievement with his national team.

However, that did not stop him from receiving individual trophies. Hence it could be considered that he has never had a trophyless season to date.
