PSG‘s 3-1 triumph over Monaco on Sunday night ensured Le Parisien secured Ligue 1 title for the sixth time in seven seasons after second-placed Lille failed to win at Toulouse, helping Dani Alves becomes the most decorated player in football history as the Brazilian secured the 42nd trophy of his stunning football career.
However, Dani Alves 42 titles and kept on widen the gap at the top on the list of most successful players in history. The full-back is an unrivalled player with this number. This puts him ahead of Egyptian icon Hossam Hassan, who dominated his country’s league with Ahly SC and Zamalek on the way to accruing 41 honours.
While Andres Iniesta has 37 winners medals on his mantelpiece with former Barca defender Maxwell and another Egyptian, Ibrahim Hassan, possessing the same amount.
One, two, three, four… and, right now 42. The conquest of Ligue 1 helped the Brazilian keep on leaving a mark on the world in football. The Brazilian player isn’t only the one with the most active titles but also the player with the most titles in football history.
Dani Alves equalled Kenny Dalglish and Ryan Giggs a few years ago and broadened the gap with the French Super Cup and now with Ligue 1. As of now, neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Leo Messi are moving toward that number, which extensively grew between his spells at Barcelona and Sevilla.
In his time in La Liga, Dani Alves won 28 of his 39 titles, including three Champions, six La Liga titles and two UEFA Cups with Sevilla. Another stint with Juventus and won two more, and finally moved to the French Capital (PSG) where he already has six titles and could reach a seventh if the Parisians win the French Cup.
Dani Alves titles outside Sevilla or Barcelona are completed with two Confederations Cups and a Copa America with his Brazilian national team.
