Aubameyang Gets Barcelona No. 25 Kit - Here Is Why No Other Number Was Possible

FC Barcelona have revealed the new shirt number of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and it is a number he has never used before - 25. Let us find out why Aubameyang will wear the No. 25 shirt.

La Liga Only Allow Numbers 1-25 For First-Team Players

The reason why Aubameyang got the No. 25 kit is simple - La Liga only allow numbers 1-25 to be used by first-team players, and there was no other number left.

Adama secured the No. 11 just a few days beforeAdama Traore just some days before got the number 11, and that left just one number - 25.

Usually, No.1, 13 and 25 are reserved for goalkeepers. However, Barcelona only have two senior goalkeepers, so Aubameyang could choose No. 25.

As pointed out by @squadnos, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the third former Arsenal player to wear number 25 for Barcelona, after Alex Song and Thomas Vermaelen.
