Morata changes his jersey number (See Reasons)

Morata-29
Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata has left his number 9 jersey number for number 29.

Parhaps the change might be fired by the speculations that the jersey number 9 is “cursed” in Chelsea.

However, Alvaro Morata has a different reason for the change.

He said he decided to change from the number 9 he wore last season to celebrate and pay tribute to his family after his wife Alice Campello gave birth to twins Alessandro and Leonardo on Sunday – 29 July.

‘It is a day I will never forget, to welcome my twin sons into the world. 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 2 to my shirt.

‘I am sorry to the fans who may have bought a number 9 with my name already, but I hope you understand my tribute and that it will not be a problem and we can make you a new one with the 29. Thank you for your support and I hope this year there will be lots more to celebrate.’
