Monday’s recap includes an iconic shirt number change for Luis Diaz, along with the latest on Liverpool transfers, both inside and outside Anfield.
Diaz takes an iconic jersey number
With the departure of James Milner, Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino, three of Liverpool’s most iconic squad numbers became available.
The Nos 7, No 8 and No 9 are all associated with some of the best and most successful players in the club’s history – and Milner’s old shirt has now been taken off.
It didn’t take Diaz long to swap his No. 23 for the No. 7, with the club announcing the news on Monday morning.
Those who have already bought a new Liverpool home shirt with ‘Luis Diaz 23’ on the back will be personally refunded by the winger – full details can be found here.
Who is likely to follow?
There have been rumors that Darwin Nunez would take the No. 9, while Alexis Mac Allister turned down the No. 8 upon his arrival.
