Brazil midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, on Friday has been given a new jersey number at Barcelona.
Barcelona disclosed this in a statement via its official website on Friday ahead of their La Liga tie with Villarreal on Sunday.
It said: “Coutinho will show off the number 14 shirt this season under new coach Ronald Koeman, the same number he wore during the first few months of his Barça career after his arrival at the Club in January 2018.
“The number has a long history at the Club and is associated with the historic figure of Johan Cruyff as well as the likes of Thierry Henry and Javier Mascherano.
“During his first six months at the Club, Coutinho wore the number 14 following the departure of Javier Mascherano. The following season he changed to the number 7 shirt that is now worn by Antoine Griezmann.”
