Joshua Kimmich will inherit jersey #6 from Thiago

Bayern Munich Joshua Kimmich is set to wear the # 6 jersey for the Bundesliga league opener against Schalke, according to Bild

He will acquire the number from Thiago Alcantara, who is set to complete a move to Liverpool in the next hours.

It’s no big deal to change the number, but going forward it does tell us that Kimmich is going to be a permanent midfielder. 

Even though he was world-class at the back of the season, Kimmich has always wanted to be a permanent midfielder, even as he helped out in the Champions League final for Bayern.

So, it makes sense for Kimmich to choose #6 as soon as it becomes available. However, after so many years of seeing the same players wear the same numbers, it will take some getting used to. Bayern has a new #6, a new #7, and a new #10, all taking the pitch at the same time.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
