Daniel Alves da Silva (born 6 May 1983), known simply as Dani Alves, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a right-back for La Liga club Barcelona and the Brazil national team. Considered one of the greatest defenders of all time, Alves is the most decorated player in the history of football with 43 trophies at senior level.
The Brazilian legend has headed back to the Blaugrana for his second spell after terminating his contract with Sao Paulo.
We can't forget that it was Alves who ultimately redefined what it means to play in the right back position. The likes of Joao Cancelo and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been unbelievable in recent years with their attacking combinations but Alves is back at the top-level to put the youngsters on show. The 'Good-Crazy 🤪' way as Dani likes to call it. He even has it on his ProGuards...
Alves agreed a return to Barca in November, signing a short-term contract until the end of the season.
He was not able to make his debut until the New Year and already looks to be making a huge impact playing under former teammate Xavi Hernandez.
Dani Alves is a longstanding user of Carbon Athletic and currently uses our ProGuards v2, as pictured below.
