Dani Alves surprised everybody this morning when the club released the official shirt numbers for the new season. The Brazilian full-back has chosen Xavi Hernandez's number 6.

Alves, who had previously used the numbers 20, 2 and 22 (in tribute to Abidal) explained why he has taken this decision on Instagram.

Alves explains

"During my life I have taken decisions of opening and closing stages... sometimes closing some to open better ones. My target in this club is to defend now a very special number, as the 22 already was. These are numbers from very important people. As highest the target is, more motivated I am. My name is Dani Alves and my number is 6"
