These were the best Anthony Martial number nine jokes after the striker was reportedly left disappointed by Manchester United’s announcement that new signing Zlatan Ibrahimović will be given the squad number this season.

Zlatan commands what he wants and it appears what he wants is the number nine on the back of his shirt as he plays in the Premier League for the first time in a distinguished career.

Brand Martial and his AM9 trademark is obvious strongly linked with the number and the French international allegedly showed his disdain at the decision by unfollowing the club on Twitter.

Here are the best Anthony Martial number nine jokes as the shirt number is given to Zlatan:

Hi @ManUtd, I bought a Martial '9' shirt last week, despite the 10 foot sign in the Megastore telling me not to. Can I have a refund?

If Martial losing the 9 wasn't bad enough, now some fella called Tag Heuer has taken De Gea's No. 1 shirt. https://t.co/0ltehCnZtX

Martial should be happy with the number 11, like why wouldn't you be? It's got the legacy of Giggs, somebody who cheated on his wife too.

7 – Anthony Martial is the first person to be upset over a number since 6 was angry at 7 because 7 ate 9. Pun.
