Dani Alves Wins 40th Trophy, Named Player Of Copa America

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Brazilian defender Dani Alves on Sunday night won the 40th trophy of his glittering career after captaining Brazil to victory at the Copa America.

Alves was also named player of the tournament at Copa America last night.

The legendary 36-year-old right-back is a free agent after his Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) contract expired at the start of the month.

After he lifted the Copa America crown at the Maracana last night, he moved into the 40s on trophies won.

The only major trophy Alves has not won is the World Cup, after Brazil flopped in last summer’s tournament, being knocked out by Belgium.

Alves started his collection at Sevilla with two UEFA Cups among the highlights.

But it was at Barcelona where he made his big breakthrough, with three Champions League gongs as well as six La Liga titles.

Since leaving the Nou Camp he has not won the Champions League but reached the final again with Juventus in 2017.

That final was his last game for the Old Lady though before he went on to Paris Saint-Germain.

He has picked up two Ligue 1 titles there, as well as a clutch of domestic trophies.
