The legendary Brazilian, who usually wears the number 10, need no introduction. During his tenure at Barcelona, his flair and grin attracted millions of football fans across the world. However, it wasn't until he joined AC Milan that he decided to wear the number 80 shirt. It was also an allusion to his birth year of 1980.

#2. Radamel Falcao - Number 3

Radamel Falcao, another world-class striker in his peak, was a guy to be feared on the football field. He made an immediate impression at Porto and Atletico Madrid before settling in Monaco. After two years at Galatasaray, the 35-year-old Colombian joined Rayo Vallecano this summer.

However, with his new supporters, he hasn't had the best of starts due to their dissatisfaction with his number. He is the number three for Vallecano. He went on to say that his father was also wearing the same jersey. His heartfelt motivation is certain to win him some new admirers at his new team.

#3. Ivan Zamorano - 1+8

The greatest of the last has been reserved for last. Ivan Zamarano had the oddest uniform number ever seen in football. In 1996, he joined Inter Milan from Real Madrid and wore the number 1+8. After a domino effect caused him to lose his number 9 shirt, he was compelled to wear the odd number.

Baggio had returned to the club and demanded that the number 10 shirt be given to him. Ronaldo agreed, but only if he was handed the number 9 shirt. Zamorano lost his shirt as a result, but after refusing to wear any other number, he chose 1+8.
