(Video) Watch Cody Gakpo’s shirt number revealed and the significance behind his selection
Liverpool FC fans were excited to see our latest signing unveiled and as soon as Cody Gakpo was finally confirmed to be a Red, attention quickly turned to what squad number he would select.
The Dutch attacker displayed the back of his shirt to reveal: “Gakpo 18,” which was a wonderful way for the club to announce his selection as he passed past our awards that are on display in the AXA Training Centre.
The 23-year-old joins Takumi Minamino, Alberto Moreno, Dirk Kuyt, Antonio Nunez, John Arne Riise, Erik Meijer, Jean-Michel Ferri, Michael Owen, Phil Charnock, and Ronny Rosenthal as the 11th player to wear the number since the Premier League’s inception.
The former PSV player wore the same jersey number for the Under-21 team at his old team and twice for his country; now, at Anfield, the legacy of his relationship with the number will continue to flourish.
