5 Premier League teams with the most number of International trophy winners
With no Premier League football for at least a few more days, I've decided to delve a little into the squads of the Premier League teams in search of international trophy winners. After all, having title winners in your team helps in a lot of ways as youngsters can learn from these players and the winning mentality rubs into the whole squad.
It wasn't really surprising that most of these players are employed by the big guns of the League whereas some of them were scattered in some of the mid-table clubs.
So let us take a look and see who employs the most no. of winners.
Note- Only senior teams and competitions have been considered.
Liverpool- Emre Can (Germany, Confederations Cup 2017)
Southhampton- Cedric (Portugal, EURO 2016)
West Ham United- Jose Fonte (Portugal, EURO 2016), Pablo Zabaleta (Argentina, Olympics 2008)
Leicester City- Ahmed Musa (Nigeria, AFCON 2013)
Swansea City- Wilfried Bony (Ivory Coast, AFCON 2015)
#5 Tottenham Hotspur- 2
We start off with a rather unexpected name. Tottenham's inclusion in this list was only possible due to their newest summer recruits.
Fernando Llorente and Serge Aurier are only 2 players to have won trophies with their respective nations, Spain and Ivory Coast.
Aurier has been a mainstay in the Ivory Coast team for past few years during which he won the AFCON in 2015.
Fernando Llorente in perhaps a name that seems to have been around for some time but somehow he never managed to be the main striker in the Spain squad due to the presence of a certain David Villa. However, he does have two international trophies namely the World Cup 2010 and EURO 2012 to his name.
