AC Milan’s new signing and superstar Ronaldinho will wear shirt number 80 at AC Milan, the club said on Monday.

The Brazilian football star, twice the world player of the year, chose this number beacause it corresponds with his birth year 1980.

In Barcelona he wore shirt number 10, but that shirt is currently held by Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf. According to Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani, it was never discussed that Seedorf would have to give up his shirt to Ronaldinho.

We’ve never asked a player to give up his number and we won’t do it this time,” said Galliani. “That would show a lack of respect.”

Adidas reveals that they have already received 11,000 pre-orders for replica Ronaldinho shirts.
