Chelsea Ace Alvaro Morata Gets New Shirt Number, Apologies To Fans (Photo)

Alvaro Morata has announced his decision to wear the number 29 shirt for Chelsea in honour of his children.


On July 29, Morata's wife Alice gave birth to twins Alessandro and Leonardo.


Morata was set to wear the number nine shirt this season but has now decided to change.


“It is a day I will never forget, to welcome my twin sons into the world,” Morata told chelseafc.com.


“My family is so important to me and I want to honour them and my wife, Alice, when I am on the pitch which is why I have decided to take a different number for the new season and remember this special day by adding the number 2 to my shirt.


“I am sorry to the fans who may have bought a number 9 with my name already, but I hope you understand my tribute and that it will not be a problem and we can make you a new one with the 29.


“Thank you for your support and I hope this year there will be lots more to celebrate.”


Chelsea then confirmed that fans who have already bought a new 2018/19 shirt with Morata and the number 9 on the back can have a free exchange.


Morata is set to lead Chelsea’s attack against Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday despite having a night to forget in their pre-season friendly defeat by Arsenal on Wednesday.
