The Fabled Number 10 Shirt: A Juventus Challenge

Another great challenge by @danovic78 here.

THE NUMBER 10 SHIRT IS SACRED IN FOOTBALL. It’s a number that carries much pressure and weight given its tradition and the players who have worn it in the past. That is no truer than at Juventus, a club with over a century of history. The legendary Italian side, winners of 33 Scudetti titles and a two-time European champion, has featured some of the world’s best players who have donned that legendary shirt.

No less than three Balon d’Or winners have worn it in addition to a host of Italian and international stars. When attacking midfielder Paulo Dybala was given that number last summer ahead of the start of the Serie A season, the Argentine wrote on Instagram that he knew how important it is to the club and its fans.

“When they asked me to change numbers, I stopped and thought about whether it was a good idea to leave number 21 that has been for me – as it will still be for the national team – a number that I care for very much and that has helped me win lots of trophies and was also worn by top players such as Zidane and Pirlo,” he wrote. “But the number 10 is a special shirt and an honour to wear it, brings with it lots of responsibility and a great link to a club like Juventus Football Club and its history. It has been on the shoulders of so many champions: Omar Sivorí, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero, Carlos Tevez, Paul Pogba. For me, wearing the 10 shirt isn’t just a dream since I was a child, but something that will allow me to want to win every game, in every competition and for every trophy.”

Do all the marquee signings for each season have to be attacking midfielders? And do only league goals and assists contribute to the total score?

The players need to be green as an attacking midfielder but obviously they can be able to play other positions as well. It’s goals and assists in all competitions.

Taking a sneaky interest in this even if I already have too many games on the go already.

By green, do you mean full bright green, or as the game descries it, do the need to be Natural or can the be Accomplished?
Not a lot of choices to replace Liam Brady.  I can see one obvious, but he would start accomplished and need to be retrained to Natural.

I would say natural or accomplished are both fine.
