10 Jersey For PSG As Neymar Reverts To No. 11 In Coupe de France. Check out the best moments from Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé's first season at Paris Saint-Germain in 2021-22.
Lionel Messi has admitted that he "missed" wearing his iconic No. 10 jersey during his time at Paris Saint-Germain, and Zinedine Zidane agreed.
He signed a two-year contract with the French club and was given the number 30 shirt, as his preferred number 10 was occupied by former Barca teammate Neymar Jr. Lionel Messi played his final game for PSG against Clermont Foot.
Pele is the standard all Brazilian footballers who don the number 10 are measured against whether rightly or wrongly. He, simply put, changed the game.
Pele made it the most famous shirt in the world. The greatest player of all time, the only man who can claim to have won the World Cup on three separate occasions, it was he that ensured that Brazil's No. 10 jersey became immortal.
The reason for Lionel Messi's shirt number change
In the Coupe de France though, all of the shirt numbers must be between one and 11, precluding Messi from wearing 30. He decided that, as he did in the prior round against Nice, he would wear the number ten.
Neymar isn't the first Brazilian to wear number 10 in Paris.
The club have reportedly given Neymar that shirt number so he can follow in the footsteps of Ronaldinho by becoming a legend in France and the premier player on the planet.
Was Messi number 9?
In 2001, three years before he made the leap to the first team, Messi played his first game for Barça's Under-13s wearing the No. 9 shirt. But for most of his time at La Masia, up until he graduated to Barça B, his squad number was number 10.
Neymar leaves PSG: The Brazilian star's turbulent journey in the French capital. Neymar has officially transferred to Saudi club Al-Hilal, six years after joining Paris Saint-Germain.
After Messi's departure from Barcelona, the jersey number was handed to Ansu Fati. The talented winger, however, could not live up to the expectations of the jersey, primarily due to injuries and remained sidelined for the major part of his stay at the Catalan club.
Well, it turns out he wears it for sentimental reasons. When a fresh-faced Messi made his Barcelona debut in 2004, he sported the No30 on his back. Messi carried on wearing the number for the next two seasons, also wearing the No19 before inheriting Ronaldinho's No10 in 2008.
Having joined PSG on a free transfer in the summer, Messi reverted back to the No. 30, the number he debuted with at Barcelona back in 2004. There was talk that close friend and teammate Neymar had offered to give Messi the iconic No. 10 shirt but the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner politely declined the gesture.
Ansu Fati is the current wearer of Barcelona's iconic No. 10 shirt, following in the footsteps of some legendary figures.
Ousmane Dembele follows Neymar, Ronaldinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic as PSG shirt number is confirmed. Ousmane Dembele has taken up the number 10 jersey at Paris Saint-Germain after Neymar's departure.
The Catalans are without a No. 10 for the first time since 1995, following Ansu Fati's decision to move out on loan to Brighton, but Diario Sport say it wasn't offered to Felix. Yet even if Barcelona had offered Felix the chance to wear the iconic shirt, it seems he would have turned them down anyway.
Messi first wore number 10 in the 2008-2009 season, with Barcelona and the Argentina national team, as well as at PSG, even though he used number 30. Messi previously wore numbers 30 and 19 with the Barcelona senior team, before using number 10 which has become his trademark to date.
It was in the 1958 World Cup that Pelé began wearing a jersey with the number 10. The event was the result of disorganization: the leaders of the Brazilian Federation did not allocate the shirt numbers of players and it was up to FIFA to choose the number 10 shirt for Pelé, who was a substitute on the occasion.
What number is Neymar known for?
This statistic shows which squad numbers have already been assigned in their history and to which players.
Neymar. After considering retirement following the country's disappointing exit from last year's World Cup, Neymar said eventually “I changed my mind” and vowed to play in the next tournament come 2026. "After the World Cup, I didn't want to go through the pain of losing again.
Ronaldinho made a move to Atlético Mineiro on 4 June 2012 in a six-month contract, just four days after leaving Flamengo. He wore number 49 in reference to his mother's birth year since his preferred number 10 was already assigned to Guilherme in the 2012 season.
Neymar Jr 10
He played 230 professional games for his first club Santos FC, scoring 138 goals before moving to Barcelona in Europe, where he scored an impressive 105 goals in 186 games.
"I know I have this visibility and that authorities will see it with good eyes." Despite their political differences, Richarlison insists Neymar "is a likeable guy.” Richarlison tells a Discovery documentary: “He's someone I admire a lot, a real idol for me.
