The target of every player during their several-year career is to reach the level of the top leagues in the world, what is from the point of view of an average person almost impossible to achieve. Reaching for trophies at that level is obviously even more inaccessible for them. There is one player though, who won 38 cups and that is Dani Alves.
Brazilian started his career in Bahia, which he left for Sevilla only one year later, first on loan, then permanently. In Andalusia he became one of the best right-backs in the league he contributed to the first European successes of the club. The team won UEFA Cup two years in row. Defender added Copa del Rey in 2007, Supercopa de Espana in the same year and UEFA Super Cup the year before.
He deserved with his performances to receive an offer from Barcelona in 2008, where he won the most trophies in his career. In his first season he won the triple, which is the La Liga title, Copa del Rey and Champions League. 2009 was a splendid year for the whole team, which won all the possible trophies, including previously-mentioned and Supercopa de Espana, UEFA Super Cup and and FIFA Club World Cup.
In the Catalan team he became a legend, but he left the club in 2016 for Juventus. In total he won 6 championship titles, 4 times Copa del Rey, 4 Spanish super cups, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup, three of each.
He played only one season in Serie A, before he received a lucrative offer from PSG. Despite being 35 years old he still plays at the top level, but right now he wins only domestic cups. In ‘Bianconeri’ team he won the double (Serie A title and Coppa Italia), and in Paris he added to the trophy cabinet Trophee des Champions, two Ligue 1 titles, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, one of each.
Alves can be insatiable only with his national team honours. One Copa America and two FIFA Confederations Cup can’t replace the feeling of winning the World Cup, which he probably won’t have a chance to win. Despite of that, no player in history had such an fruitful career as Brazilian.
