The most decorated players in football history
12. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (32 trophies)

11. Xavi (33 trophies)

=8. Karim Benzema – 34 trophies
In addition to his 25 trophies at Real Madrid, Benzema won eight titles at Lyon and the UEFA Nations League with France in 2021.
The Frenchman could still add to his trophy haul this season. Real Madrid are currently in the sem-finals of the Champions League, where they will face Manchester City in a blockbuster tie.
=8. Vitor Baia (34 trophies)
The legendary Portuguese goalkeeper enjoyed great success at Porto, while he also won five trophies during his two-year stint with Barcelona.
=8. Cristiano Ronaldo (34 trophies)
Still going strong at the age of 38 with Al Nassr and Portugal, you wouldn’t bet against Ronaldo cracking the top five at some point in the next few years.
=6. Gerard Pique (35 trophies)
Pique hung up his boots in November 2022 after an illustrious career that saw him star for Manchester United, Barcelona and Spain.
=6. Kenny Dalglish (35 trophies)
‘King Kenny’ established himself as a Celtic and Liverpool legend during his career.
5. Ryan Giggs (36 trophies)
Giggs won all 36 of his trophies at Manchester United.
=3. Andres Iniesta (37 trophies)
Considered one of the best midfielders ever, Iniesta is still going strong with Japanese outfit, Vissel Kobe.
=3. Maxwell (37 trophies)
Maxwell is perhaps a surprise entry in the top three. Maxwell was a dependable full-back who won trophies at Ajax, Inter Milan, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
2. Lionel Messi (42 trophies)
The 42nd trophy of Messi’s career, Argentina’s World Cup triumph, may well have been his sweetest. With Paris Saint-Germain dominant in French football, it seems almost inevitable that he will take top spot in 2023.
