FC Bayern München have officially announced the shirt numbers of Lucas Hernández, Benjamin Pavard, and Jann-Fiette Arp.
Winning the World Cup with this number, Lucas Hernández will proudly wear the number 21 for FC Bayern. Joining from Atletico Madrid, the French defender is wearing an historic number for die Roten: number 21 was previously worn by Philip Lahm. Hernández will be hoping to emulate the exploits of the legendary German defender.
Previously wearing the number during his career at VfB Stuttgart, Benjamin Pavard will continue to wear the number 5 at FC Bayern. Number 5 has been worn by players such as Franz Beckenbauer, Klaus Augenthaler, current assistant coach Robert Kovač, and recently departed Mats Hummels. Now Pavard has the opportunity to create history with the legendary number.
Joining from Hamburger SV, the talented Jann-Fiette Arp will continue to wear the number 15. Aspiring to emulate the success of previous players who have worn the number — Zé Roberto and Samuel Kuffour — the 19-year-old has a long and exciting career ahead of him.
