Chelsea’s Pedro Beat Messi and Ronaldo to this unparalleled record

Chelsea’s Europa League final victory over Arsenal has seen Blues winger Pedro add yet another trophy to his now unmatched collection.

The 31-year-old has won the Champions League, Premier League, Europa League, World Cup and the European Championship – a collection no other player in world football can match.

Pedro’s list of silverware doesn’t end there either with the former Barcelona man also boasting five La Liga titles, three Copa del Rey trophies, three UEFA Super Cups, two Club World Cups and an FA Cup.

The Chelsea attacker played a key part in Chelsea’s 4-1 victory against the Gunners on Wednesday as he scored his side’s second goal on the hour mark.

After finishing third in the Premier League this season, the Blues’ Europa League triumph proved an ideal, and now familiar way for Pedro to finish a season. 

“For us, lifting a title is the best, most satisfying feeling,” Pedro told Chelsea’s website prior to the final.

“It means that we have done our job well over the course of the season and ultimately, to have the opportunity to feel that emotion when you lift the trophy is something unique.

“You have to experience it to know what it feels like because you cannot put it into words. 

“You’re always eager to keep winning titles and to keep winning trophies because it is important for your career and it helps you grow as a player.

“You can get bored of many things, but never winning. You always want to win as many trophies and titles as possible.” 

Pedro also became just the fifth player to score in the final of both the European Cup or Champions League and the UEFA Cup or Europa League. Allan Simonsen, Hernan Crespo, Dmitri Alenichev and Steven Gerrard preceded the Spain international
