Now that the transfer window has closed, the shirt numbers of the 9 players in the senior squad have been finalised. Most of them remain the same as last year – the only changes are that Bojan will take over the number ‘9’ from Ibrahimovic and pass his number ‘11’ to Jeffren.
For Bojan, it will be a return to the shirt number that he wore throughout histime in the youth squads. He is the first home-grown player to wear the number ‘9’ shirt since Jordi Cruyff, 15 years ago. Bojan broke into the senior squad three years ago with the number ‘27’ shirt and for the past two seasons has worn the number ‘11’.
