Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona, Ronaldo Nazario, and Cristiano Ronaldo have been successful their entire career but never won every trophy. Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been exciting in the current football generation winning various trophies but have never won the FIFA World Cup.
In the Premier League, there are successful players like Mohamed Salah, N'golo Kante, Cristiano Ronaldo among others who have enjoyed a successful careers. These players are among the best players in the Premier League.
However, Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has been successful his entire career at the national and club level. The 33-year-old Spanish international was among the best players in the golden years for Spain and won the two major trophies with Spain.

Mata also won the UEFA Champions League while he was at Chelsea and the Premier League title before joining Manchester United. At Old Trafford, he won the UEFA Europa League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup.
The Manchester United no 8 will go down as one of the greatest Spanish midfielders after the great success with his country. Mata won every trophy in football and the only thing that he missed in his success list is the Ballon d'Or award.
