Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, left the fans of the royal club in great confusion on Tuesday during the presentation of Joselo’s new deal.

Real Madrid signed Joselo for a season on loan from Espanyol, who were relegated to the second division to compensate for the departure of Karim Benzema, who moved to the Saudi Federation of Jeddah.

But the surprise was that Joselo got the number 14 shirt instead of the number 9, which no player on the list has worn since Benzema’s departure.

Joselu said during his speech at a press conference on Tuesday: “Every number at Real Madrid is important. I am very proud to wear any number. Any player in the world would do anything to be able to wear this jersey. number is secondary.

Joselo does not prefer the number 14, who wore the number 9 shirt during his Alaves and Espanyol careers.
