Pato to wear Didier Drogba’s No. 11 Shirt at Chelsea

Chelsea’s online store has reportedly revealed the squad numbers for the Blues’ two summer signings, Alexandre Pato and Matt Miazga.

The United States international, who signed from New York Red Bulls, will apparently wear the No. 20 shirt, while it seems as though Pato will adopt a kit with a little more prestige to it.

The 26-year-old Brazilian, who has signed on loan from Corinthians, could be in line to wear the club’s No. 11 jersey that was most recently occupied by Didier Drogba.

Though there’s still no official confirmation from the club themselves—with both Pato and Miazga without squad numbers on their official Chelsea biographies—the comparisons are inevitable.

And fans of the west London team will not be complaining if Pato can replicate some of the impact at Stamford Bridge that Drogba did.
