Winning trophy is the main aim for footballers, but it is not easy. Firstly you must be extremely talented and play for a side that is regularly challenging for honours. Just like Ryan Giggs, who spent his entire career at Manchester United but won numerous trophies. Recent years, several Barcelona players have also regularly won trophies .
