Braithwaite Inherits No.9 Shirt At Barcelona Following Suarez Departure by ghettokid1(m): 6:54pm On Oct 06, 2020
The Danish striker has been given the opportunity to fill the boots of a former Camp Nou talisman who made his way to Atletico Madrid last month
Martin Braithwaite has officially inherited the No.9 shirt at Barcelona following Luis Suarez's departure.
Suarez completed a €6 million (£5m/$7m) move to Atletico Madridfrom Barca on September 23, bringing to an end a hugely successful spell at Camp Nou.
The Uruguayan got his hands on 13 trophies during his time in Barcelona, and scored a total of 198 goals in 283 games, but ended up leaving the club in controversial fashion.
Ronald Koeman told Suarez he would not be in his plans for the 2020-21 campaign upon his appointment as the Blaugrana's new head coach in August, and he subsequently pushed to be released from his contract.
The 33-year-old initially agreed personal terms with Juventus before negotiations broke down because Barca refused to pay his full annual salary through to next summer.
The Spanish giants eventually ended up allowing Suarez to join a main Liga rival in Atletico, but six-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi was among those to voice his frustration at the club for forcing out a talismanic figure.
Barca weren't able to bring in a replacement for Suarez or indeed any kind of attacking reinforcements before Monday's transfer deadline, with a proposed deal for Lyon's Memphis Depay ultimately falling through due to a lack of funds.
Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele now make up Koeman's forward line along with Braithwaite, who secured a surprise emergency switch to Camp Nou from Leganesin February.
Despite the fact the Denmark forward has yet to feature for Barca in 2020-21, he has been passed down the jersey which Suarez quickly made his own after joining the club from Liverpool in 2014.
It had been suggested in the Spanish media that Braithwaite had asked for Messi's No.10 shirt earlier this summer, having seen the Blaugrana captain hand in a transfer request following a humiliating 8-2 loss to Bayern Munichin last season's Champions League quarter-finals.
The 29-year-old angrily dismissed the reports, however, telling Danish newspaperBT last month: "What do people think themselves?
"Of course I did not go to the club and ask for Messi's number. It would be so disrespectful.
"I really feel that the people who come up with these kinds of stories lack respect for a lot of people."
Braithwaite will be in line for his first appearance of the campaign when Barca take in a trip to Getafe after the international break, while Suarez and Atletico face a tough away fixture against Celta Vigo.

He is nowhere of the quality of other players at Barca and is weak technically.

But to have an ounce of hope to succeed at Barca he needs to have a strong character because if he can groove to the beats of pressure then only he can survive.

That’s what Paulinho also did.

Goals and assists will come for sure if you get to play alongside Messi and Griezmann but the thing to see will be the significance of those goals.

Umm, this one weak me ahswear. I like his attitude though. He seems like someone who's eager to succeed @barca. But he lacks the qualities and skills of a typical barca no.9
Hopefully he will prove his worth this season.

Honestly, he is just average!!! However, so are most of them coming through Koeman's plan... All he needs is to put in the effort, stay focused, and perfect his touches and finishing!

I like the faith Koeman has in this new generation of players! They have the fine potentials to become as great as the current Atalanta side.

This is why Man United needs a coach like Koeman, Nagelsmann, Ten Hag, or Pochettino. People who will pick out the right players with passion, zeal, and commitment!!!... Not the the one that selects like a novice, and mismatches players lacking fight and commitment.

I don't know much about him, but he should try and live up to expectation. As that number may either make or mare him. Wishing him the best of luck.

Hmm it's really brave of Koeman to allow Luiz go without an immediate replacement.

To me this dude can't fill the boots of Suarez.
