When thinking of the most successful clubs in the world, a handful spring to mind straight away.

The likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich are renowned for dominating competitions time and time again.

However, when it comes to the most successful club in the world based on the number of trophies won, none of those sides top the world leaderboard.

In fact, they’re not even in the top five, according to a chart created by Goal.com which shows the top 30 most successful clubs in the world.

Barcelona, one of the biggest giants in club football, are actually the sixth most successful team in the world when it comes to winning trophies.

Real Madrid trail Barca by one trophy and one place in the table whilst Bayern can label themselves the 14th most successful side.

As for Manchester United, they can only occupy 12th spot whilst Liverpool sit 18th with 59 pieces of silverware to their name.
