Athletic Club Reveal Player Numbers For The 2018/2019 Season
With so many new faces at Athletic Club this summer there was a lot of talk among fans about who would be wearing what number. From the beginning of preseason friendlies it was already clear that some decisions had been made. For instance, Iñaki Williams was wearing 9 in training and matches and Unai Nuñez was sporting the 3 in both. The new signings also had their own shirts, but those were not permanent.
On Saturday Athletic officially announced the player numbers for the 2018/2019 season and there were a few surprises. Yuri Berchiche switched from 2 to 12, Cristian Ganea from 28 to 2, Ander Capa from 25 to 21, and Dani García changed from 21 to his favorite number 16. Meanwhile, Alex Remiro took the number 1 shirt left behind by Kepa Arrizabalaga while Unai Simón, who was just recalled from loan with Elche, took the 25 shirt.
The player numbers list is officially as follows:
