Paris Saint-Germain's Dani Alves recently became the player with the joint most titles in football history, equalling the record of another Brazilian. Here are the eight most decorated players in football, including one African.

Click through the gallery above to see the eight players with most trophies in football history.

The Selecao international claimed the 36th title of his career after Paris Saint-Germain beat second-placed Monaco 7-1 in Ligue 1 last weekend, which confirmed that last season's champions can no longer overtake PSG in the table.

The Ligue 1 trophy was Alves' third title since joining the French giants, and he can still claim another trophy in the Coupe de France, for which PSG have qualified for the final, and will play against third-tier side Les Herbiers.

Alves has now collected 36 pieces of silverware for club and country – more than any other player in history.

He lifted five titles with Sevilla, 23 with FC Barcelona, two with Juventus, three with PSG and another three with the Brazil national team.

Here is Alves' trophy cabinet in detail:

Sevilla: 1 Copa del Rey, 1 Spanish Super Cup, 2 UEFA Cups, 1 UEFA Super Cup

Barcelona: 6 La Ligas, 4 Copa del Reys, 4 Spanish Super Cups, 3 UEFA Champions Leagues, 3 UEFA Super Cups, 3 FIFA Club World Cups

Juventus: 1 Serie A, 1 Coppa Italia

PSG: 1 Ligue 1, 1 Coupe de la Ligue, 1 Trophee des Champions

Brazil: 1 Copa America, 2 FIFA Confederations Cups

Alves also won three titles in his native Brazil with Bahia in the early stages of his career, but all three – namely, the two Campeonato Baianos and one Copa do Nordeste – were regional and not country-wide competitions.

The 34-year-old has now won as many trophies than his countryman Maxwell, who retired with 36 titles, while Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs sits in joint-third spot with 34 trophies. Andres Iniesta won his 34th trophy in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday and is likely to add the LaLiga title soon.

Al Ahly legend Wael Gomaa is the only African among the eight most decorated players, having won 33 titles during his illustrious career.

Note: The list was compiled based on information from Transfermarkt and Soccerway.
