Leroy Sane will take Coutinho’s number 10 shirt at Bayern Munich next season
Leroy Sane will wear Philippe Coutinho’s no.10 shirt at Bayern Munich next season.
It is a huge pointer to Coutinho’s future at the Bundesliga club (Bayern), with a summer departure looking likely.
Sane just completed a £44.7million-plus move to the German champions on Friday and was handed the squad number.
However, Sane personally decided not to use the No.10 shirt in his official signing portrait, “out of respect” for Coutinho, Bayern confirmed.
Coutinho “indicated his full understanding” of the decision and he will keep his old number for Saturday’s German Cup final and any of the Champions League games in August.
The Brazilian midfielder, who is spending the season on loan at the Allianz Arena, originally belongs to Barcelona.
