JUVENTUS defender Danilo hit out at Fifa after they claimed Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player to win LaLiga, the Premier League and Serie A.
The Old Lady wrapped up their ninth league title on the bounce with a 2-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday.

Maurizio Sarri led the celebrations inside the changing room with a cigarette and champagne as he became the oldest manager to win Serie A.
Even Ronaldo missing out on the golden boot – not helped by missing a penalty – could put a dampener on the wild antics after full-time.
But Ronaldo’s Juve team-mate Danilo was left puzzled as Fifa overlooked his achievements while congratulating the Portugal hero.
Fifa tweeted: “10 goals in 10 games since the resumption of @SerieA_EN
has helped @Cristiano become a multiple-time league champion in England, Spain & Italy.
“No other player has even won all 3 leagues once. The country doesn’t matter when you’re from another planet.”
Ronaldo won three Premier League titles with Manchester United in 2007, 2008 and 2009 before his world-record move to Real Madrid.
At the Bernabeu, he picked up LaLiga winners medals in 2012 and 2017 and then added back-to-back Serie A crowns in 2019 and 2020 following another massive transfer fee.
But while it is true no other player has won all multiple titles in England, Spain and Italy, Fifa’s claim that “no other player has even won all three leagues once” is wide of the mark.
And Danilo pointed it out by retweeting Fifa’s post with four thinking emojis.
The Brazilian full-back picked up two Primeira Ligas with Porto in 2012 and 2013 ahead of his switch to Real Madrid, where he won LaLiga alongside Ronaldo in 2017.
He then secured successive Premier Leagues under Pep Guardiola with Manchester City in 2018 and 2019.
And his switch to Juventus last summer – in a swap deal with Joao Cancelo – means he added the Serie A crown to his list and secured four league crowns in the last four years.
Fans on Twitter were loving his cheeky tweet – while others claimed Kingsley Coman’s achievement is far better.
The French winger has not played in England or Spain but has won NINE league titles in the last EIGHT years – and is still only 24.
He landed the Ligue 1 titles in 2013 and 2014, Serie A with Juventus in 2015 and 2016 – although he only played one match before joining Bayern Munich on loan.
Coman wrapped up the Bundesliga in that same season and then again the following year on loan before a further three titles since making the switch permanent.
Fifa were right to say Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player to win LaLiga, the Premier League and Serie A on multiple occasions
