Manchester United have confirmed that Adnan Januzaj will wear the number 11 jersey next season for the club.

Rumours spread across the internet yesterday that Januzaj was to succeed Ryan Giggs in wearing the shirt after it was spotted in the club megastore.

Ryan Giggs wore the number 11 jersey for more than 20 years at United making it an iconic squad number.

The fact that Januzaj has been given the number is a massive vote of confidence to the young Belgian winger.

United released this statement on Instagram: Adnan Januzaj has been given the no.11 shirt at #mufc, following in the footsteps of Reds legend Ryan Giggs. See the full list of squad numbers for the 2014/15 season on ManUtd.com.
