In an interview with Manchester United’s official website, Verhorst said: “I have done relevant research before and looked at the numbers that I can choose from. 2 7 is equal to 9. This is a striker’s number. I have a feeling for the number 27.
A special feeling, so I chose this number.
“Of course, I also know that this is the number of Teles who is currently renting out. I communicated with him about this matter, and he said it doesn’t matter. I am very grateful to him for allowing me to choose this number. So, in the end I chose
27, that number gives me a good feeling.”
