People watching Juventus against Atalanta quickly noticed the unusual scribbling next to the number 10 on the back of Paul Pogba's Juventus shirt, mistaking it for a '+5' writing at first. Pogba only switched from the number 6 shirt to the iconic 10 before the season.


After the match, Paul Pogba clarified things and confirmed that it was actually a '75' and that the writing was dedicated to Brazilian legend Pele who had turned 75 on Friday.

Pogba didn't forget about the boot game either, lacing up in his latest custom Nike Magista Obra boots.
