“Later it was proven that I was right. As I was the first person who said it, they called me crazy, but, as always…I am a good crazy!”

During his time at the Nou Camp, Alves won six LaLiga titles and four Champions League trophies.

Aged 37, he now plays in Sao Paulo but is known for having the biggest trophy cabinet in football history.

The most decorated player of all-time, Alves has won a remarkable 41 trophies in his career.

However, he does not consider himself the best right-back to play the game.

When asked whether he believes he tops the tree in that position, he simply said: “After Cafu.”

Alves also weighed in one the Lionel Messi v Cristiano Ronaldo debate, with the charismatic Brazilian predictably picking his former Barca team-mate.

“Despite the greatness of the two, a picture is worth a thousand words,” he said before sharing a picture of himself and Messi.

Alves also named compatriot Neymar as the most skillful player in the world, adding: “Without a doubt.”
