8. England (7 out of 48)
There is a sharp jump down from Spain to the country with the second most number of trophies in European Club football. Goes to England. Home to the richest football league on the planet, English teams have won a total of seven European Club trophies in the 21st century. To their credit, they have also finished runners up several times, but it just highlights the stark contrast between the Spanish and other nations.
Only three English Clubs have trophies to their name in the 21st Century.
Liverpool FC – 4 Trophies (1 UEFA Champions League, 1 UEFA Europa League, 2 UEFA Super Cup)
Chelsea FC – 2 Trophies (1 UEFA Champions League, 1 UEFA Europa League)
Manchester United – 1 Trophy (1 UEFA Champions League)
While many would say, the English League is overall the most competitive league, it can be said the elite teams of England are not really able to match the Elite of Spain. Maybe, Manchester City could someday make it deeper in European Competition.
