Dani Alves Is The First Player In History To Win 40 Trophies

Dani Alves Is The First Player In History To Win 40 Trophies

Brazil's triumph in the Copa America on Sunday night is just another medal in the cabinet for Dani Alves.

The 36-year-old now boasts a ridiculous 40 trophies in his glittering career following Sunday night's 3-1 win over Peru.

Alves has lifted three Champions League trophies, six La Liga titles and five Copa del Rey's during spells at Barcelona, Juventus and Sevilla.

Not to mention two Ligue 1 titles in his most recent spell with Paris Saint-Germain.

Brazilian full-back Maxwell became club football's most successful player when he lifted the French League Cup with his Paris Saint-Germain teammates in May 2017.

Maxwell won two Dutch titles and a pair of KNVB Cups during his five years with Ajax before lifting three consecutive Serie A titles with Inter Milan.

But Alves' success in Paris knocked his fellow Brazillian off the top spot.

At the age of 36, he doesn't look to be slowing down on the pitch either.

Brazil's captain scooped the Man of the Match award with another stellar performance as his side knocked Argentina out at the semi-final stages.

And his outing in the Copa America final was solid. In fact, Alves was deservedly named the best player of the tournament.

Alves has contributed massively towards attacking and defensive phases of play in this year's tournament and still has the stamina to run the line, despite his age.

He is currently a free agent after leaving PSG at the end of the season.

Would you take him at your club?
