MANCHESTER CITY star John Stones [...].

MANCHESTER CITY star John Stones had to think twice about taking the departed Pablo Zabaleta's No.5 shirt for next season. The Blues defender wore No.24 last term, but boss Pep Guardiola asked him to be the new No.5. "When I got offered the shirt I had to take time to think about it," he said. "That's because it has been worn by some iconic players... and in this instance Pablo. I did not want to dive into it and then regret it. I spoke to Zaba before I took his shirt. I wanted to cover all the bases and, hopefully, do it justice."
