Ibrahimovic to wear No.10. after Nene departure

The Sweden striker will wear his preferred number of choice at Parc des Princes during Ligue 1 games, but will not be allowed to change his jersey for the Champions League
Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is to be given the No.10. jersey following the departure of Nene to Al Gharafa.

The former AC Milan striker, who moved to France during the summer, made clear his desire to wear his preferred shirt number of choice upon his arrival in the capital.

"I hope the club will make me happy," he told Le Parisien back in July.

Unfortunately Nene did not wish to relinquish the jersey he felt was rightfully his and the Sweden international had to contend with the number 18 shirt.

However, with Nene departing Parc des Princes for Qatar, Ibrahimovic will now be granted his wish for Ligue 1 encounters.

But Uefa regulations prohibiting players from changing their jersey during a European campaign, mean he will have to make do with his original number for Champions League games.
