Football: It's the one that I want, says Davids

LONDON, England (AFP) - Former Dutch international and Champions League winner Edgar Davids will wear the number one on his shirt this season despite playing in midfield.

Davids, the head coach at English non-league side Barnet, said he was determined to have the number one on his back even though it is the traditional jersey for a goalkeeper.

"That is my number for the season. I am going to start this trend," the 40-year-old told the Barnet Times. Goalkeeper Graham Stack will wear the number 29 for Barnet who were relegated from the English fourth division last season and into the semi-professional fifth-tier Conference.

"Edgar Davids has asked to wear number one, he asked me what number I want and I said I didn't mind," said Stark.
