PSG left-back Maxwell overtaken as football’s most decorated player

The Brazilian has been passed by his compatriot Dani Alves after the Juventus right-back won a Serie A title

What PSG left-back Maxwell hasn’t won probably isn’t worth winning.

The Brazilian has lifted league titles in four different countries, won the Champions League with Barcelona and accumulated 36 pieces of silverware in total.

Alves, who arrived at Barcelona on a free transfer from Barcelona, has now won a league title and Coppa Italia in Turin, with the chance to lift the Champions League on offer next week.

The only other current player in sight is Andres Iniesta who’s five behind Alves, on 32, but could add to his collection by winning the Copa del Rey final against Alaves.

Barcelona must be regretting the decision to allow Alves to leave the club for absolutely nothing last summer.

Absolutely. Nothing. Not even a Tesco’s meal deal.
