McKennie and Locatelli change squad numbers – The official list

August 13, 2022 - 11:30 pm

Ahead of their first Serie A match, Juventus have released the full list of squad numbers, which included some unforeseen changes.

After donning the number 72 last season, Manuel Locatelli will have a more prestigious jersey, as he’ll wear the number 5 next season.

According to ilBianconero, this is another clear sign that Arthur Melo has become an outcast in Turin as the management is trying to find him a new club.

The Brazilian was the one who had the number 5 over the last two campaigns, but the club has now handed him the number 29.

Moreover, Weston McKennie has inherited the number 8 following the departure of Aaron Ramsey. The American had donned the number 14 during his first two seasons in Turin, but he’ll now wear the same number that he often adopts while representing the American national team.

As for the club’s newest signing, Filip Kostic opted to take the number 17 which was worn by the likes of David Trezeguet and Mario Mandzukic in the past.

Finally, Fabio Miretti took the number 20 which has been vacated following the departure of Federico Bernardeschi.

    We need another forward. If chiesa, Vlahovic or di maria get injured for any length of time, we are in trouble.
