Jordan Ayew's Squad Number For Swansea Is Just Irritating
There was a time when football was simple, devoid of incredibly irritating squad numbers that don't match up to position. Now, the likes of midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is destroying our OCD by choosing the number two jersey.
Swansea's Jordan Ayew is the latest player to jump on the stupid number bandwagon, choosing the number three jersey.
It seems Ayew has followed in the footsteps of his Ghanaian teammate Asamoah Gyan, who has worn the number three jersey on just about every continent.
Although, Ayew only had the number 3, 50 and 58 to choose from. But then again, he could have chosen any number between 64 and 99.
