No Barcelona Player Dares To Wear Messi’s No.10
Barcelona announced on Sunday morning a squad list that includes the numbers their players win don for the duel with Getafe at 17:00 CEST at the Camp Nou.
Philippe Coutinho was rumoured as a potential taker for Lionel Messi’s No.10, but the Brazilian midfielder, who returned to a matchday squad following his long-term injury, picked his preferred No.14.
Pedri and Ansu Fati will miss out on the duel, but fans would be willing to see either of them inherit Messi’s shirt for the next few campaigns, as they are considered by supporters and club as Barcelona’s future.
Should one of the two youngsters accept the challenge, lots of pressure will be placed on him as he will be called to don the number of the best player in the club’s history.
Meanwhile, Gerard Pique, Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Aguero are all sidelined through injuries, while Eric Garcia is out due to suspension.
