Dybala Announces Return, Voices Belief in Juventus Comeback

Paulo Dybala is ready to resume playing after yet another minor injury. And he is confident about the fact that Juventus could still mount a comeback and catch up with Inter and the other title contenders.

La Joya attended a ceremony for the opening of the 17th Torneo Amici dei Bambini in Milan yesterday night. His words were transcribed by Corriere della Sera: “I am fine now, I have re-joined the rest of the squad in practice, and I hope to play every game, starting with the Spezia one, if the coach fields me.”

“The gaffer thinks we can not talk about the Scudetto, but that is only his opinion. We are Juventus, and we aim for the best possible result, even though it is not up to us. There are a lot of matches left. We will face Inter at home too. We are in the running, and I believe in it.”

Dybala dished on Villarreal: “They are a difficult team to face, but we will be in front of our fans, and that gives us a major advantage.” Director Federico Cherubini was in attendance too, but the two said that there is nothing new to report on the extension, as the parties have yet to meet formally.

Dybala looked at his time at Juventus: “I was very happy when Cristiano Ronaldo joined. You learn a lot from champions. I have played next to some great players. Gianluigi Buffon was an important locker room guy, like Dani Alves. They help you grow a lot. Lionel Messi and Ronaldo are different, but I know the latter better.”

The Argentinian striker will soon surpass Roberto Baggio for goals scored with the Bianconeri: “He was phenomenal, and I would like to meet him. He did it in fewer games, though.”
