Is there a legendary jersey number for you team?

The Best Number! - Georgie Best's no. 7 jersey - a number he and his followers made famous.

I came up with this topic after watching a short material during the Chelsea - Manchester United break. It reminded me of the exceptional players United had alog the years that wore the no. 7 jersey: George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham or even Cristiano Ronaldo. Those exceptional players make the 7 jersey the best number in United's history. My favorite home team, Steaua Bucharest, also has a player that made the no. 7 jersey famous for this team's fans: Marius Lacatus, a legend for the club made that number famous. Many national teams have legendary jersey numbers. Romania and Argentina had exceptional no. 10 players, that will probably never be taken the title of best player ever for their countries: Gheorghe Hagi and Diego Armando Maradona. Does your favorite team have such a special, legendary jersey number? If so, what player made it so famous?

Thank you for your response! I didn't know about Facchetti, as he played long before I was even born, and since I'm not a Internazionale fan. Your post made me acknowledge this great player, thank you for that!

I think that Number 9 was exceptional as great scorers wore that jersey in panathinaikos such as Krystof Warzycha... The other exceptional number was the keeper's 1 cause most of the famous keepers came from panathinaikos oikonomopoulos, wadzik,nikopolidis,chalkias, etc and as for #7 is another one cause was also wore by one of the best players in greece Saravakos. the bad thing is that in the current team these jerseys are used by not such good players :(

I think the jersey no. 10 was made popular by the likes of Maradona and Pele before him and since then I think it has become a global phenomena that the no. 10 is the spot for the best player in the team. But what the heck a jersey does not maketh a player, a player makes the jersey!! :) Cheers! Ram

I'm a red devil too so I agree that the number 7 is extremely special for Manchester United. All of the best players United have ever produced mostly wore the number 7 jersey. Cristiano Ronaldo and Beckham to name some.
