Samuel Chukwueze and Santi Cazorla on the pitch together, will be looking to achieve great things this season with Villarreal, spotting new jersey numbers.

Chukwueze, who starred last season with the Yellow Submarines, wore the number 30 in his breakout season at the club, but is opting for something that fits better in the new term.

 

Like Cazorla and three other old teammates, the young Nigerian is looking to familiarize the fans with something cultural and unique.

 

In a statement on the club’s website, Chukwueze will now wear the jersey number 11, while the 34 year-old Spaniard drops the number 19 and “will wear the No.8, which he wore during his previous spell with the Yellow Submarine.”

 

The jersey number 11 was famously worn by former Danish star Jon Dahl Tomasson, in the 2007/08 La Liga season when the club finished as runner up.

 

The official shirt numbers are as follows (as well as the number, this is how their name will appear on the shirt):

1. S. Asenjo

2. Mario Gaspar

3. Albiol

4. Pau

5. S. Cáseres
