Compilation Of Dani Alves As A Central Midfielder Aged 37 Shows He's A Complete Player

37-year-old Dani Alves has been completely and utterly running the show for Sao Paulo as a central midfielder.

The Brazilian is widely considered to be one of the greatest right-backs in the history of football and won trophies galore for Sevilla, Barcelona, Juventus an dParis Saint-Germain.

But if you're wondering what he's up to nowadays, he's still going strong with boyhood club Sao Paulo in his native Brazil. O Clube da Fé are top of the league with 56 points after 28 games and Alves has been in fine form.

Wearing the No.10 shirt and captaining his side, Alves is first in accurate passes-per-game, third in key-passes-per-game, and, according to SofaScore's rating system, he is the fifth best player in the Brazilian top flight with a 7.38 score.

And his highlights show just how impressive his reinvention under Fernando Dinaz has been at this late stage of his career.

Alves has always been excellently technically and this four minute compilation shows what a complete player he is. He's acted as a destroyer, midfield metronome, creator and even a goalscorer on occasion.

published ata month ago

Some of the touches, passes and crosses are just sublime and watching him, you get the feeling he's still got a few more years left in him.

With 43 honours in his glittering career at the very top, Alves is one of the most successful players in football history and with Sao Paulo seven points clear of second-placed Atlético Mineiro, it's looking like he will add another trophy to his collection.

Alves is the definition of versatile as he has played in virtually every position - including as a goalkeeper.

He donned the goalkeeping gloves for PSG and went in between the sticks in a 4-1 win over Sochaux in the French Cup.

In the 90th minute goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was sent off and with no subs available, Alves, despite being 5 ft 6, stepped up to the plate and kept a clean sheet in his short stint in goal.
