They disrespected me by giving youngster my number 10 jersey - DStv PSL player cries foul.

You may be wondering what a jersey number represents. A great deal.

When Lionel Messi went from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in a high-profile transfer, no one dared take the number 10 jersey away from Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Messi is inextricably linked to the number 10 shirt. However, he must adapt and now wears the number 30 jersey.

Miles away from France, a South African great is protesting the donation of his number 10 jersey to a child.

Karabo Tshepe is on fire, and according to football journal Phakaathi, he is unhappy with his team TS Galaxy's treatment of him since he was injured.

Among them was the presentation of the number 10 shirt to a youngster. His fictitious jersey number was assigned to the naive Ethan Brooks.

Tshepe sustained a long-term knee injury last season and is yet to fully recover.

The former Kaizer Chiefs player is hopeful of returning to the field and wearing the number 10 shirt.

According to a source, Tshepe believes the club no longer has his best interests at heart, despite the fact that he was injured while playing for the badge.

He stated that the club might have informed him of their choice to assign his shirt number to someone else rather than simply dismissing him.

“What happened to Stitch (Tshepe) is not a pleasant situation. They simply gave Brooks his phone number without properly consulting him. It implies that they are unconcerned about him. That is how it appears because he is now battling a knee issue that does not appear to be healing quickly. He is not in a good mood, and he is perplexed as to why he is being treated so harshly. Giving away his jersey number, as the saying goes.
