Krzysztof Piatek announced today that he will be officially be the next AC Milan number nine.
When is a shirt number more than a number? When it’s something like the number 9 shirt for Milan. Milan legends such as Filippo Inzaghi, George Weah, and Marco van Basten all wore the number nine shirt. While players such as Gonzalo Higuain or Patrick Kluivert may have wore it for a season or so in their short stays at the San Siro, the number 9 shirt should be reserved for a special player. It’s only right that Piatek should be the next to wear it with pride.
