Dani Alves: Brazilian becomes most decorated footballer of all-time following Paris Saint-Germain’s title triumph

Dani Alves has become the most successful footballer in history following Paris Saint-Germain’s title triumph on Sunday evening.

The Brazilian, 36, has now accumulated an astonishing 42 trophies in his 20-year strong career.

Alves won his 42nd trophy on the weekend as PSG were crowned champions again

And he achieved the feat before his side had even kicked a ball, as Lille were held to a goalless draw by Toulouse meaning Thomas Tuchel’s side were crowned Ligue 1 champs with six games remaining.

Alves now has more silverware than Egyptian legend Hossam Hassan, who dominated the game in his native country with Ahly SC and Zamalek, winning 41 honours.
