Dani Alves scooped the 40th major trophy but who beats his haul?

Dani Alves moved his trophy tally to four on Sunday night when he lifted the Copa America with Brazil; this coming after overcoming Peru.

The Paris Saint-Germain right-back has been in the game for 18 years with five clubs and getting 115 caps for his country.

Alves started his career at Brazilian outfit Bahia before moving to Sevilla in 2002. He claimed domestic titles, including league and cup, wins, at Barcelona, Juventus, and PSG.

The 36-year-old won three Champions League crowns while with Barcelona in 2009, 2011 and 2015.

Alves has also enjoyed a successful career for his country, winning the Copa America in 2007 and the Confederations Cup twice in 2009 and 2013 before his second Copa triumph on Sunday night.

But his trophy haul is beaten by former Egypt international Hossam Hassan who won 41 trophies in his career.


The striker led Egypt's forward line for over two decades and totted up 169 caps in the process. He mostly plied his trade in Egypt but during his one season at Swiss side Neuchatel Xamax he scored four goals against Celtic in the 1991-92 UEFA Cup, a feat he is most remembered for outside of Egypt.

His Honours include: Egyptian Premier League x14, Egyptian Cup x5, African Cup Winners' Cup x4, Egyptian Super Cup x2, African Cup of Champions Clubs, Arab Club Champions Cup, Arab Cup Winners' Cup, Arab Super Cup x2, CAF Champions League, UEFA Club Cup, Saudi-Egyptian Super Cup, Africa Cup of Nations  x3, All-Africa Games, Arab Nations Cup

Clubs: Al Ahly, PAOK, Neuchatel Xamax, Al Ain, Zamalek, Al-Masry, Tersana, and El-Ittihad Alexandria

Others to be on a high trophy haul include Egyptian Ibrahim Hassan (37), Brazilian Maxwell (37), former Ukraine goalkeeper Oleksandr Shovkovskiy (36), Andres Iniesta (35 trophies), Lionel Messi (35), Ryan Giggs (35), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (35),
