After Paulo Dybala completed his transfer to Roma, he was offered the No. 10 jersey. But the Argentine refused it out of respect to club legend Francesco Totti.

Instead, he chose to wear No. 21 for the upcoming season, the same digit that he had at Juventus.

Dybala wanted to stick to 21, a number he is attached to, as he knows the responsibility and pressure that comes with the No. 10 jersey at Roma.

He said:

The director had suggested that I take 10, which is very important here for what Totti has done. That shirt must still be his. I thanked them, because for such a shirt there must be respect and responsibility.

Maybe one day I’ll wear it, but today I’m happy with 21. It’s a number I’m tied to and with which I started to win.
