Dani Alves has always been a slightly “different” footballer.
While the lives of many top players consists of kicking balls, playing PlayStation and sleeping, the Barcelona legend has always taken a slightly alternative approach to being a football superstar. He said that he is surprised that he will not wear Barcelona shirt. Remember he is recently transferred from Barcelona to Juventus.
With that in mind, we should perhaps not be surprised at the Brazilian’s explanation for his choice of squad number at Juventus.
The 33-year-old right-back – who was mobbed by fans when he reached Italy. – has declared that he will be wearing 23 for the Old Lady.
The reason? His love of basketball star LeBron James.
