Lionel Messi has officially left FC Barcelona, but his departure has caused a stir in Camp Nou. There has been a lot of speculation about the No. 10 shirt that the former first-team captain recently vacated. Despite being the most likely person to inherit the number, Sergio Aguero has confirmed that he has moved in a different direction.
The truth is that no one at the club wants to take Messi’s legendary shirt. Needless to say, no one would want to sit under a microscope wearing the club’s biggest player’s shirt.
Sergio Aguero, a teammate and close friend of Messi’s Argentina team, joined the Catalan giants earlier this summer. He likes to wear a number 10 shirt, and even captain Gerard Pique revealed that he advised his new teammate to do so.
Just a few days ago, while hosting a Twitch stream where Pique appeared as a guest, the impressive Ibai Llanos asked, “No one will wear the number 10, no? No one is so brave.”
The Barcelona veteran then replied, “Well, I think someone has to do it. I told Qin to wear it, but he’s not sure.”
As it turns out, Agiro has decided to take 19 points instead. He confirmed his decision by sharing a photo of his number. 19 Barcelona jersey on it. Instagram The account with his name is hidden on “Kun Aguero”.
Despite the new captain’s suggestion, the Argentine forward decided to take his friend’s number. Instead, it looks like Philippe Coutinho could end up with the number 10.
After being on the cutting block all summer, it looks like Brazil won’t finally get out. Not only will he be staying at Camp Nou, now it looks like manager Ronald Koeman is ready to make him a regular part of the first-team squad.
