Paris Saint-Germain stalwarts Thiago Silva and Marco Verratti won their seventh Ligue 1 Conforama title in season 2019-20, taking their place among some of the most illustrious names to have graced France's top flight.

Having won seven titles in the last eight seasons, Paris Saint-Germain are dominating Ligue 1 Conforama just as AS Saint-Etienne (seven titles in ten years) and Olympique Lyonnais in the early 2000s (seven titles in a row, a record) did before them.

Thiago Silva, Verratti make history

Thus it's no surprise the most steadfast Parisians - Thiago Silva and Marco Verratti, who joined the club in the summer of 2012 and have been part of every league title the capital club has clinched since then - join an elite group of players.

Indeed, the Brazilian and the Italian now boast the same number of titles as Saint-Etienne legends Hervé Revelli and Jean-Michel Larqué, as well as Lyon's Grégory Coupet, Juninho and Sidney Govou.
