Jersey No. 10

Jersey No. 10

The concept of jerseys was introduced for the purpose of referring to the players on the field and for positioning them from a farther point of view. All numbers were the same at the advent of this very ideology however with time some figures turned into hit-numerical and few gained wretched connotations.

The possession of jersey number ‘10’ by eminent players who in fact are the match-makers has brought glory for this figure. In football the bearer of jersey no. 10 is considered to be the most prized chap of all and the goal-gainer or the playmaker.  Fortunately or unfortunately the figure has got the belief. Like metaphysics, it is something ‘abstract’ and can only be felt. The wearers of number ten jerseys include almost all top players of soccer. Credits go to Pele and Maradona for tagging this number with luck. The legends have got the current generation players carrying the legacy after them which include Rooney, Kaka, Fabregas, Zizou (Zinedine Zidane), Beckham, Platini, Totti, Figo, Ronaldhino, Owen and many others to be named. Messi made this thought mightier with his magnificent matches.

Ten-holders have become a cult; the axiom is extended to our games too. Who has the jersey no. ten? Sachin Tendulkar, the God of the game is another golden bearer.

Playmaker or the play-breaker the jerseys have got a name for them, more than for identification the purpose of numbering the shirts have taken a new dimension in the last decade. When it comes to soccer, the player wearing number ten ‘has’ to perform as the number gives him an urge!

Bharathi Murali

Author:

Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
