MILAN - "Because 3 plus 3 is 6 and I wore 3, the number that belonged to Giacinto here and one that will rightly remain his alone. Because my father, who is a die-hard Interista, remembers the 6 worn by Armando Picchi, and because 6 was my mother’s number when she played basketball." Statements to the press from Marco Andreolli this morning on the subject of his new Nerazzurri shirt number: 6.
Andreolli is not the only player to be changing his
number for the 2013/14 season: Hugo Campagnaro will take number 14, which was
freed up by Fredy Guarin, who in turn takes 13.
Jonathan also made a switch, to number 2, and Juan Jesus will take number 5.
Ishak Belfodil and Mauro Icardi will be putting on the Nerazzurri shirt for the first time, and they’ll wear 18 and 9 respectively.
