Calvin Phillips inherits Vincent Kompany's jersey number –

Football News: Manchester City midfielder, Kalvin Phillips, has commented on the number 4 jersey he will use after officially playing for The Cityzens. This number is not an arbitrary number because it is a legacy of Vincent Kompany.

Calvin Phillips earlier this week was officially introduced as a new Manchester City player. The 26-year-old midfielder was brought in from Leeds United by spending £42 million and getting a six-year contract.

As with other Man City players, Phillips also got the jersey number that he will use starting the 2022/23 season. If previously he was identical with the number 23 jersey, then at City he will use the jersey number 4. This number is also not an arbitrary number because it is inherited from the club legend, Vincent Kompany.

“In the previous season I had scored a few goals so I thought I could play more than the number eight. Then he [Bielsa] came in and told me straight away that when was the number 4 player.”
