Rakitic inherits Banega's '10' at Sevilla

The ex-barcelonista Ivan Rakitic, who returns to the team of Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, will shine in the Seville the number '10' that leaves free Ever Banega after his departure to Saudi football. The Croatian already said in his presentation that it would be an “honor” to wear the shirt left by a player of the Argentine quality, although he also indicated that he would not mind recovering the '11' that he wore in his previous stage at Sevilla. However, that number will continue to be worn by another former Barcelona player, Munir El Haddadi.

Next to Rakitic, the other two reinforcements in Julen's squad Lopetegui, Oscar Rodriguez and Marcos Acuña, the ‘14 and ‘19’ will appear respectively.

On the list offered by the Seville It is striking that the '2' remains free and that Joris Gnagnon still does not count for the project at the moment, like other discards such as Aleix Vidal, Amadou, Corchia and Roque Mesa.

On the other hand, the homegrown players Carlos Fernández and Pozo will wear ‘24’ and ‘17’. Players like Gudelj (6), Suso (7), Joan Jordán (8) and De Jong (9) change their number to a “starter” number.
