Manchester United assigned ‘Legend number 27’ to replacement Ronaldo

 He was given the number 27, which was the uniform number of the club’s legend.

Manchester United previously announced the signing of Boot Behorst (30) on loan on the 14th (hereinafter Korean time).

Behorst, who played for Burnley and Turkiye Besiktas, joined Manchester United after agreeing to end his loan early. Manchester United embraced him by paying a transfer fee of 2.8 million euros (approximately 3.7 billion won).

Behorst was chosen as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the club when his contract was terminated by mutual agreement last month. Having scored 8 goals and 4 assists in the league this season, he also participated in the World Cup in Qatar as a member of the Dutch national team and scored 2 goals.

On the same day his contract was announced he was even spotted at Old Trafford. When the team played The Vision against Manchester City, he was caught watching the game from the stands with his family through a relay screen. 메이저놀이터

Ahead of his Manchester United debut, his shirt number was announced. On the 16th, the club announced through the official channel, “Behorst has been assigned uniform number 27.”

He had never played in the number 27 before. Previously at Emmons, he wore number 28 in his first two seasons and went on to wear number 19 and 19 for the first time.

Number 27 is also the number of Manchester United legend Gary Neville. He was the first Manchester United player to wear the number 27 shirt, and played with that number from 1992 to 1994.

The key now is when he will be able to make his debut. The club raised expectations by adding, “Whether he will make his debut against the upcoming Crystal Palace remains to be seen, but coach Eric ten Haag will give an update prior to the trip.”
