The only player to have won the six biggest trophies in world football

The Balon d'Or is just one of Ronaldinho's achievements.

Many footballers have become legends over the course of their careers, but only one has managed to win the six ‘biggest’ trophies in world football. Can you name him?

The player in question is of course Ronaldinho, a man whose career path has taken him to every corner of the world.

The Brazilian was arguably the best player in world football for several years and everyone has a story to tell about the buck-toothed hero. To this day Manchester United claim that only the weather prevented them from signing of former Brazil international.

Over the course of his career, Ronaldinho won everything worth winning, starting his European adventure with PSG then shining with Barca before returning to South America.

Such was his succes, Ronaldinho managed to achieve a particularly impressiva and unique s3xtet. The Brazilian is the only player ever to have won a World Cup, a Copa América, a Confederations Cup, a Champions League, a Copa Libertadores and a Balon d’Or. The six biggest trophies that a Brazilian can dream of winning.

In terms of the importance of his trophies, very few can compete with the Brazilian who stands out as one of very few footballers to have won the two biggest club competitions in their respective continents: the Champions League and the Copa Libertadores.

A legendary feat matched only by a select few.
