Morata To Wear No 29 Shirt For Chelsea This Season by olamariamjonez(m): 9:24pm On Aug 03, 2018
Alvaro Morata will wear the No 29 shirt for Chelsea this season to pay tribute to his new-born twins.

The 25-year-old striker wore No 9 last term after joining from Real Madrid in the summer but hasdecided on a new shirt number after his wife Alice gave birth to twins Alessandro and Leonardo on July 29.

Morata, who scored 11 goals in 31 Premier League appearances last season, has been the subject of transfer speculation over the summer, but new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said he was "very confident in him for the future" after his side's pre-season tie with Inter Milan.

"It is a day I will never forget, to welcome my twin sons into the world," Morata said on Chelsea's website.

"My family is so important to me and I want to honour them and my wife, Alice, when I am on the pitch which is why I have decided to take a different number for the new season and remember this special day by adding the number two to my shirt."

Very Great idea and Decision from Morata...

The Number 9 Jersey in Chelsea has been Unfavorable to Every Player Since Jimmy Floyd Hasslebanks Dropped it!

Two likely but hidden reason
1. a striker is coming and has asked for the no 9 shirt
2. morata is running away from a cursed number 9 shirt.
hassellbank was the last successful user of that no 9 shirt in Chelsea football club. crespo, Boulharous, di Franco, Torres etc weren't successful wearing that number, good luck to morata and hope your fortune increases with no 29
