(Video) Watch Liverpool’s latest signing Arthur Melo reveals his shirt number and why he selected it for Liverpool
Brazilian international Arthur Melo has successfully completed a one-year loan deal to play for Liverpool and he has revealed why he selected his shirt number for the Reds.
The 26-year-old will wear the No.29 shirt and, in an interview with the club, he said:
“The number 29 is special to me, it was my number at my first professional team Gremio.
“It brought me a lot of luck so maybe there’s an element of superstition around the number 29.
“It’s a number that I really like, it brought me a lot of luck and hopefully it will do the same here at Liverpool”.
There is quite a tradition of successful midfielders to come from the Porto Alegre club, and let’s hope this continues.
Lucas Leiva (who is currently playing for Gremio) is a former member of the same Brazilian club.
It has now been made public that a fee has been agreed upon for the Juventus player should this move be successful.
Let’s hope he can succeed at Anfield and that we decide to make this a long-term move.
