The Argentine is usually seen with a the No.30
During Paris Saint-Germain’s Coup de France loss to Nice, there was a strange anomaly among the Parisian’s line-up as Lionel Messi donned the famous No.10 shirt for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
But why was Messi wearing the No.10 shirt he made famous during his time with Barcelona?
The answer is simple. In the Coup de France when teams are playing up until the quarter-finals, the teams must wear consecutive numbers. With the regulations stating that the players starting the game must be numbered 1-11. As a result, Messi got to pull on the No.10 against Nice.
That said, it didn’t bring PSG much luck as they were eliminated from the tournament via a penalty shootout.
