Barcelona duo handed new shirt numbers for 2022/23 campaign

The Barcelona duo handed out new shirt numbers for the 2022/23 season

Barcelona has distributed some new shirt numbers to two of its top players.

La Blaugrana has already made a major change to his shirt this summer after giving Pedri the number 8, which was previously worn by the great Barcelona player, Andreas Iniesta.

Now, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Andreas Christensen have new numbers.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed for Barcelona in January and took over the 25th jersey as his favorite was 9th and 17th with Memphis Depay and Luke de Jong respectively.

However, with the latter now gone, Aoba took that opportunity to reclaim No. 17.

Elsewhere, Andreas Christensen wore No. 4 for most of Chelsea’s tenure. Unfortunately for him, this number is with Ronald Araujo.

In contrast, the Dane decided to sign up to fifteen players previously occupied by Clement Lenglet, who is now on loan with Tottenham.

The club has not officially announced these changes, but they are reflected in the Official Website Under the banner of the first team.

Elsewhere, new players Frank Casey, Robert Lewandowski and Ravenha have yet to receive an official shirt number.

Robert Lewandowski would presumably want the number 9 shirt, but that is currently held by Memphis Depay.

As for Ravenha, he could accept the number 11 after he was vacated by Adama Traore, who is now back at Wolverhampton after a loan spell in 2021/22.

Kessie also wore a 79 with AC Milan, but that number is not available in La Liga, so he will have to change his shirt number this term as well.
