Henrikh Mkhitaryan to wear No. 77 shirt in Europa League

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will wear number 77 in the Europa League due to a rule preventing him from wearing the number seven shirt he was handed after replacing Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal, the club said in a Twitter post.

UEFA’s rules forbid two players from wearing the same shirt number in European competition during a single season.

Article 52 Section 02 of UEFA’s rulebook states: “No number may be used by more than one player on a team and no player may use more than one number in the course of a season.”
