Squad Number Announced

As a kid the announcement of squad numbers meant the season wasn’t far from starting.  It also made my mind up who I would get on the back of my shirt.  If you still go in for all that today the squad numbers were announced for the 2017/18 season.

As revealed Wayne Rooney would wear number 10, with his fellow new forward Sandro Ramirez will taking the famous and iconic number nine shirt.

Of the other summer signings (so far), goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will be number one, defender Michael Keane will wear number four, with Dutch midfielder Davy Klaassen donning the number 20 shirt.

Yannick Bolasie has swapped number 14 for seven, with Morgan Schneiderlin keeping number two.

Intriguingly Joel Robles has been given 33 and Oumar Niasse 34 respectively however Luke Garbutt (remember him) hasn’t been given a number at all.
