Number nine jerseys in football are notably the popular jerseys of strikers and attackers and that of Confluence Queens’ Esther Kanu is not an exception. The Manchester United follower scored three goals and made two assists last season (2018/19) as Confluence Queens recorded their best season finish with Super 4 qualification as well as finishing second behind the Champions, Rivers Angels.
