Real Madrid has assigned Vinicius Junior (22-Brazil) the number 7 shirt.
Real Madrid unveiled its squad numbers for the 2022-23 season on the club’s website on Wednesday. Vinicius’ number is the most eye-catching. Vinicius, who previously wore number 20, has inherited number 7. Real Madrid’s number 7 was worn by Eden Hazard until this season.
Azar left Real Madrid at the end of the 2022-23 season. He is in the process of deciding between retirement and a move. Before Azar, Mariano Diaz wore Real Madrid’s number 7, and before that, Cristiano Ronaldo, and before that, Raul Gonzalez.
For any team in the world, the number 7 symbolizes an offensive ace. For example, Son Heung-min wears the number 7 for the South Korean national team and Tottenham Hotspur. Ronaldo has worn the number 7 for Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and the Portuguese national team. David Beckham, Luis Figo, Andriy Shevchenko, and Raul Gonzalez have also worn the number 7 during their careers.
Vinicius wore the number 28 in the 2018-19 season when he first joined Real Madrid. At the time, he was one of the club’s most promising strikers. In his second year, he wore the number 25 and then the number 20. Steadily improving his game, Vinicius has grown into one of Real Madrid’s key attackers over the last two seasons.
Real Madrid has finally found the right number 7. Real Madrid have been without a number 7 since Ronaldo’s ‘CR7’. Díaz was dubbed ‘MD7’ and had high hopes, but was benched in his first season, while Azar, the next to wear the number 7, was ridiculed for his injuries and lack of self-care. It’s time for Vinicius to elevate the Real Madrid number 7.
Vinicius is not the only player to change his number. The Brazilian striker also changed his number. After wearing the number 21, he’ll be wearing the number 11 for the new season. This is the number that Gareth Bale used to wear. This means that the Brazilian duo will be the new owners of Real Madrid’s numbers 7 and 11.
Now it”s time to find a new owner for number 9. Karim Benzema, Real Madrid’s No. 9 for more than a decade, recently made a surprise move to Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad. Given Benzema’s goalscoring prowess, symbolism, and weight, it’s hard to imagine anyone else taking over the number 9 jersey. Some have suggested Harry Kane (Tottenham) and Victor Osimhen (Napoli) as possible candidates. 토토사이트
