Antonio Valencia Get’s The No.7 Shirt confirmed this evening that Ecuador international Antonio Valencia has been handed the number 7 shirt. The club also confirmed that Nick Powell will be wearing the number 25, whilst Shinji Kagawa will wear the number 26 shirt.

It was widely rumoured that Kagawa had turned down the iconic number 7 shirt so he could make a name for himself in his own number. I’m glad the shirt has gone to Valencia though, he proved that he deserved it based on last season.

After Michael Owen didn’t do the shirt justice, let’s hope Valencia can follow in the footsteps of the legendary number 7s of the past, including George Best, David Beckham, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
