Trophies

*Major trophies only

Scholes: 18

Pirlo: 8

Xavi: 15

Scholes has the most of all three,largely thanks to his incredible haul of 11 Premier League titles.

Xavi has won the Champions League the most of all three - three times with Barcelona - while Scholes and Pirlo will just simply have to make do with two winners' medals - unless the Italian can pull off something special with Juventus this season.

Both Xavi and Pirlo are World Cup winners, while most believe Scholes didn't have an international career befitting of his talent.

Winner: Although Scholes has more, we're giving this one to Xavi for his two European Championships, three Champions Leagues and one World Cup.
