Milan world capital of football, Berlusconi the most successful


- No city can boast the joint level of success that Milan can. Madrid may have seen the European Cup brought home nine times, but that was all Real's work, not Atletico's. By contrast AC Milan have won 18 international trophies (world record) with 7 European Cups/Champions Leagues and Inter have chipped in with three of their own, with both clubs winning a host of other continental cups. Milan's 2011 Serie A triumph took them level with Inter – who had won the previous five but not all of them "on the pitch" – on 18 titles. AC Milan and Inter are true giants of world football and their international success stretches from the early 1960s to the present day, with Inter winning the Champions League in 2010 and Milan the recent 2003 and 2007 Champions Leagues.
Berlusconi owns Italian giants AC Milan - and has done for 25 years. In this period, the Rossoneri have won 27 trophies - this year's Serie A title being the latest - prompting the controversial figure to suggest renaming the San Siro stadium after himself, as he's the most successful president in history, as there's Madrid's Bernabeu stadium named after that president already.
AC Milan 2011-2012 target will be to win the Champions League again.

League titles won: 36
Domestic cups won: 11
European trophies won: 20
World titles won: 7
International trophies won: 20+7= 27


There are an incredible 24 professional football clubs located in Buenos Aires, the most in world football. The two biggest are River Plate and Boca Juniors, who have won their domestic title 56 times between them. Buenos Aires can also boast five World Club Cup wins – three more than all of British football combined. No wonder this city managed to produce one of the greatest players ever to kick a ball, Diego Armando Maradona. But the best player in history was probably Pelè. Maradona had many drug problems and in the '80s they didn't check him... so we can't say if his performances were all regular.

League titles: 90 (we have to say that in some countries, as Spain, Scotland or Portugal , it's a bit easier to win League titles because there are less strong teams, and of course foreign teams can't play)
Copa Libertadores titles (South America's Champions League): 9
World titles: 5
International trophies: 9+5= 14


It's 25 years since Liverpool and Everton met in the FA Cup final, with both clubs also having fought a season-long battle to be crowned title winners. Liverpool won the double that season, but Everton beat them to the title the season before and after. At the time it was said that if you were the best team on Merseyside, you were probably the best team in Europe too. How the mighty have fallen. While Liverpool have managed to pick up the odd cup and won the Champions League in 2005, the Reds have been off the pace in recent seasons. Everton, meanwhile, have been mired in mediocrity for decades, hampered by poor investment. Liverpool is a great football city, for sure, more than Manchester, looking at history, but it has a long way to go before it knocks Manchester off its current perch.

League titles: 27
Domestic cups: 19
European trophies: 12
World titles: 0
International trophies: 12+0= 12


London can currently boast 13 professional football clubs, but traditionally those teams have (apart from Arsenal and, very occasionally, Tottenham) played second-fiddle to the cream of the north. In the last decade the capital city has experienced probably its most successful spell ever. Arsenal and Chelsea have been Manchester United's only consistently true rivals in the Premier League-era and both have come close to breaking London's duck in the Champions League final, but that is one key area in which this huge city falls down on the football front. Indeed, even a specially-created combined London XI – taking players from the capital's leading clubs – couldn't taste European success, losing the inaugural Fairs Cup final (the forerunner of the modern Europa League) to Barcelona in 1958.

League titles won: 19
Domestic cups won: 40
European trophies won: 9 (but London never won a Champions League/European Cup)
World titles won: 0
International trophies: 9+0= 9


In 1968 Manchester was home to both the English champions (Manchester City) and the European champions (Manchester United). Now, 43 years later, Manchester stands on the brink of claiming those two titles once more (but the Champions League only in United dreams), plus the FA Cup. Clinching the Premier League and FA Cup on the same day proved Manchester is now the football city in England, but the same could be said in the late 1960s when both clubs picked up titles and cups over several seasons before going into decline. Make the most of it Manchester, because nothing ever stays the same in football, apart from Milan.

League titles: 21 (City 2)
Domestic cups: 22 (City 5 FA Cups+2 League Cups) in England there are 2 Cups competitions , in Italy 1
European trophies: 6 (one is City's Cup Winners Cup in 1970)
World titles: 2
International trophies: 6+2= 8


There are no fiercer rivals in world football than Celtic and Rangers. Religion wars. The two clubs have dominated Scottish football for most of its history and draw incredible crowds considering the dubious quality of the competition. Sadly for the Parkhead and Ibrox faithful, they remain huge fish in a very small pond, which hampers their impact outside the domestic scene. A repeat of Celtic's 1967 European Cup win looks more distant than ever, although both clubs made the Uefa Cup final in the past eight years to show the potential that will always exist in Glasgow.

League titles won: 96
Domestic cups won: 98
European trophies won: 2
World titles won: 0
International trophies: 2+0= 2

MARSEILLE (france), Olympique Marseille 1
PARIS (france), Paris Saint-Germain 1

but many of these above never won an European Cup/Champions League.

International trophies won:

fRANCE lol 2

A real world order could be:

1) Milan
2) Buenos Aires (Argentina)
3) Madrid
4) Montevideo (Uruguay)
5) Barcelona
6) Liverpool (but no Club World Cups)
7) Turin
8) Amsterdam
9) London (but no Club World Cups and no Champions Leagues)
10) Munich, Manchester, Sao Paulo (Brazil), etc.
there would be Mexico City and some good African teams to add, but they have different competitions without winning any Club World Cup, so the value is different. Also in South America they have several international competitions, that's why Buenos Aires is 2nd (Sao Paulo would be at least 5th).
