While unveiling Dembele, PSG forgot that Super Eagles legend Jay-Jay Okocha wore the number 10 jersey.
French forward Ousmane Dembélé has inherited the Paris Saint-Germain number 10 jersey.
Dembele picks up the historic PSG number 10 jersey following the departure of Brazilian playmaker Neymar, who left to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal.
Dembele the new PSG number 10
Dembélé was already at the center of PSG's plan, and now with the number 10 jersey, he has proof of his importance.
PSG announced that Dembele would get the number 10 jersey in a video on Thursday, August 18, 2023.
The football social media space was on fire following the announcement that Dembele would get the number 10 jersey.
The word hospital trended as many explained Dembele's well-documented injury history.
Neymar suffered several injuries during his time at PSG, and fans expected Dembele to follow suit.
PSG snubs Okocha among number 10 greats
The video unveiling Demeble as the new number 10 highlighted several legends that have worn the jersey in the past.
The former PSG number 10 jersey holders in the video include Bosnian Safet "Pape" Sušić, and Brazilian magician Ronaldinho.
Others include Argentine midfield maestro Javier Pastore, Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and the recently departed Neymar.
The snub for Okocha comes after the new home PSG kit was modeled after his era with the club.
Okocha was suspiciously missing from the list of great PSG players to have worn the number 10 jersey for the club.
However, it is on record that Okocha wore the number 10 jersey from the 1998/99 season to the 2001/02 season.
Nigerians took to social media to react to Okocha's snub among the greats to have worn the PSG number 10 jersey.
Okocha, now retired, is one of the greatest football exports from Nigeria.
He now participates in several charity games around the world.
