Manchester United have awarded highly promising youngster Adnan Januzaj with Ryan Giggs’ old number 11 shirt this season, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Belgian international, who made his first-team breakthrough for the Red Devils last season, is regarded as one of the most exciting talents in the game at the moment, and his new shirt number will reflect the importance he holds in Louis van Gaal’s side for the coming season.
Giggs is one of the most famous players to wear the number 11 for United, having called time on a glorious playing career at the end of last season. The Welshman will now work as assistant manager to van Gaal for the upcoming 2014/15 campaign.
Elsewhere, Luke Shaw will take the number 3 shirt vacated by Patrice Evra, and fellow new signing Ander Herrera will wear 21.
