Chelsea’s Oscar has returned Dider Drogba‘s number 11 shirt to him for the 2014/2015 season, and will now take the number 8 shirt.
“I am very pleased to be able to return to the number 11 shirt and I am very grateful to Oscar for allowing me to make this change,” the influential Ivorian told the club website.
He wore the number 15 during pre-season, the shirt he originally had when he first signed for Chelsea from Olympique de Marseille in 2004.
“Didier is a Chelsea legend and a senior player. I am happy for him to take the 11 and for me to take the eight,” Oscar said. “Lamps is another legend at this club and I hope I will be as successful in the shirt as he was.”
