stupidest football shirt numbers in football history!

Buffon is known as one of the best goalkeepers ever. But his shirt number at his old club may not be the greatest ever. For some strange reason he chose the number 88. It caused some controversy at the time as the Jewish community considered the number to be a neo-Nazi symbol. The letter H is the eighth number in the alphabet so two H’s represent “Heil Hitler”.

Buffon said of his choice:”I have chosen 88 because it reminds me of four balls and in Italy we all know what it means to have balls: strength and determination,” he said. “And this season I will have to have balls to get back my place in the Italy team.”
