He is not Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. In fact, Diego Maradona was not even close. The top winner throughout history is Dani Alves, who had an extremely successful career in Europe, and went on to conquer the world as a right-back.

Dani Alves' career can be summed up with three words: win, win and win, the same thing he intends to do in the final of the Olympic Games, in Tokyo, looking for the gold medal. The Brazilian already has 45 titles, which credit him as the highest in the history of football. In fact, his title at the Olympics makes him the oldest footballer to win gold. He celebrated with Bahia, Sevilla, Barcelona, Juventus, PSG, Brazil and Sao Paulo. 

At Bahia: 

Before succeeding in Europe, Alves won up to 3 titles in his first stage in Brazil. With Bahía, a club in which he excelled, he achieved 3 championships: 2 Nordeste Cups in 2001 and 2002, and 1 Baiano Championship, in 2001.

At Sevilla:

The first time he celebrated in European football was with the Andalusian club. There he ended up winning a Copa del Rey (2007), a Spanish Super Cup (2007), two UEFA Cup (2006 and 2007) and a European Super Cup (2006).

At Barcelona:

Of course, he would get the label of super champion with the Catalan institution, where he got tired of lifting trophies: six leagues, four Copa del Rey, four Spanish Super Cup, three Champions League, three European Super Cup and three Club World Cup. Not bad, huh?

At Juventus:

His time in Italian football was brief, although it was enough to celebrate two titles: a league and an Italian Cup.

At Paris Saint Germain

In his last team, he also had several celebrations: two leagues, a French Cup, two French Super Cups and a League Cup.

With Brazil National Team

And he also won with his country, of course: two America's Cups, two Confederations Cup, a U-20 World Cup and the Olympic Games.

At Sao Paulo

After the Sao Paulo title in the state tournament, the talented winger added a new cup to his extensive record. Although he did not participate in the final against Palmeiras, the 38-year-old footballer once again won a trophy in Brazil after 19 years (Northeast Cup with Bahia in 2002), which make him the footballer with the most cups in history .
