Success in Football Clubs has been redefined a lot recently, while some find the joy of winning a silverware or trophy as success, others regard the stability and financial prowess of the club as successful as well.
Simply put success in Football Clubs is relative depending on where you stand on the divide.
However, having said that, we will be taking a look at the topmost successful clubs in the world from a silverware point of view, and here are the top ten.

The club of the century as they are called is unrivaled on the African continent being the most successful club in the Egyptian premier league and the Caf Champions League which they have won on record occasions.
Their success has brought them 41 Egyptian Premier League titles and having defeated South African club side Kaizer Chiefs in July 2021 in the Caf Champions League final, their CAF Champions League titles stand at 9.
The Glasgow side rival neighbors Celtic in the Scottish Premier League on most occasions share the Scottish Premier League title between themselves.

Barcelona was tied with Real Madrid on major trophies before their Copa Del Rey title last season which pushes their Copa Del Rey to 31.
