Winning titles in Europe's biggest club competitions is most players' dream. As such, here are 10 big names who have been lucky enough to win both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see 10 players who have lifted both trophies!

Former Portugal internationals Deco and Ricardo Carvalho won both trophies during their time at FC Porto under current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Deco, however, also lifted the Champions League with FC Barcelona in 2006 under the management of Frank Rijkaard.

Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher are also among the players in the list, having both won the Europa League in the 2000/01 season and the UCL in the 2005 final that is remembered as one of the greatest comebacks of all time.

Losing 3-0 at half-time, the English club mounted an incredible second-half fightback that resulted in Liverpool winning on penalties after extra-time.

Englishmen Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick lifted both trophies with the Red Devils, while Juan Mata also features on the list – the Spaniard won the UCL and the Europa League when he was a Chelsea player, and won his second Europa title with United last season.
