The main reason is that there are 11 players on the field, so it would be logical that one player would have "10" on their shirt.
However, I think your question refers to the attacking midfield role commonly associated with players that wear the number 10 (although not always i.e. William Gallas; the central defender from Arsenal F.C.) This role is the creative fulcrum of a team. It is often filled by a player who has unbelievable vision and passing ability to set up goals or score them. Excellent examples of players in this position are Kaka and Yossi Benayoun (even if they do not wear the number 10).
The number 10 in soccer is for the play maker. It is often a center mid or a forward who can take over the game and make something happen at any point.
originally the starting 11 players wore numbers that were associated with their position. Goal keeper wearing number 1 and so on (this was later scrapped, with the exception of the goalkeeper in most cases). The number 10 position usually held the best offensive opportunities. It wasn't until players like pele or zidane that it started having any real significance though.
Managers give the number 10 shirt their best striker or attacking midfielder.
The player that wheres number 10 is usully the best plyer on the tem.
