Anthony Martial handed number 9 jersey at Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handed Antony Martial the number 9 jersey ahead of the new Premier League season. 

The shirt was previously worn by Romelu Lukaku, who joined Inter Milan on the last day of the transfer window. 

Martial initially wore the jersey when he joined United but chose to surrender it to Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2016. 

Lukaku then took over the shirt once the big Swede left for MLS, with Martial keeping his number 11 jersey. 

 

 

United will take on Chelsea on Sunday in their opening match of the 2019/20 campaign at Old Trafford.
