Henrikh Mkhitaryan Will Have Two Different Arsenal Squad Numbers This Season

Henrikh Mkhitaryan Will Have Two Different Arsenal Squad Numbers This Season

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will own a little slither of history after making his move to Arsenal with the midfielder set to wear TWO different squad numbers for the rest of this season.

The Armenian international finally completed his protracted move to the Gunners from Manchester United yesterday, with Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez going in the other direction.

Arsenal quickly announced that Mkhitaryan would immediately inherit the No.7 shirt previously worn by Sanchez at the Emirates, but that won’t be the case in Europa League matches.

According to the ultra reliable folks over at dedicated kit website Footy Headlines, Mkhitaryan is unable to turn out in the No.7 shirt in Europe because Sanchez has already done so for the North London club this season.

Taking a quick glance at the numbers available on the squad list, possible options include 26, 36 and 42 for the clash with Swedish outfit Ostersund in the Round of 32 next month.

What back-up number do you think he’s suit?

Let us know in the comments section below…
