Dani Alves Has Played In Every Position For PSG

Dani Alves is the definition of a utility man.

The Brazilian is only into his second season at Paris Saint-Germain after joining on a free transfer in the summer of 2017 but he has played in a whole host of different roles for the Ligue One champions.

Of course defence is a given because that's Alves' set position and one he has excelled in during his career, but because of his supreme attacking abilities he's also played further up the pitch as a winger and even a forward on occasion.

Recently - because of an injury to Marco Verratti - the former Barcelona and Juventus man has been filling in as a makeshift central midfield player and doing a pretty good job of it, too.

But his versatility stretches beyond that because you might remember that last season, Alves donned the goalkeeping gloves and went in between the sticks against Sochaux in the French Cup.

In the 90th minute of Paris-Saint Germain's 4-1 win over Sochaux in the French Cup, 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.

Him directing his wall when the opposition had a free-kick was hilariously brilliant.

And thanks to his recent displays in the middle of the park, the 35-year old has now played in every single part of the pitch for the Parisians.

After winning a domestic treble in his debut season in France, Alves has lifted a phenomenal 38 trophies in his career and is therefore the most decorated active player in world football.
