4 footballers who won almost all major trophies
Accolades are what the big names in any sport play for. After all, it is what sets them apart from the rest. The more a player is able to win, the more valuable he gets. There are the likes of Ronaldo, Andres Iniesta, and Pele, who have won a tonne of accolades and have registered their name in the history of sports as the 'ultimate winners', to Jermain Defoe and Antonio Di Natale, who haven't won a major trophy in their career.
These accolades are a symbol of their hard work and passion that they have put forward in order to secure glory and a few such footballers have surprisingly won enough trophies to seal their legacy as some of the best footballers around. Their trophy cabinet has been filled with multiple accolades, and have inspired every other football player to embark on a journey like none other.
#4 Juan Mata - Manchester United.
Mata is considered by many as one of the most underrated talents in the football world as he is one of the most skilled attacking midfielders ever to play in the modern era. His debut season with Chelsea is what he is remembered for as he won the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 2012 for both himself and his club. A lesser known fact is that Mata is one of the only few Spanish football players to have won almost all the major trophies that are available.
With FIFA World Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, the English FA Cup, FA Community Shield, UEFA Euro, and English League Cup, Mata surely has some accolades on his CV. The UEFA Super Cup and a League title is what the Spaniard is missing. Indeed, his time at Manchester United this season has raised some questions, but his determination will surely get him the missing titles.
