When the vice-president of your club goes public saying that you need to sort your personal issues out and focus on football, you know you’re not the man you’re expected to be on the pitch.
Paulo Dybala heard Pavel Nedved say exactly that, and talking about the Juve vice-president’s public statement, Max Allegri preferred to see this whole thing from a different perspective.
Rather than criticising Dybala, I would call Nedved’s words ‘tips’. He is a vice-president who has played football and there’s some advice there
the Juventus coach said at a news conference, ahead of the Bianconeri’s game at Bologna.
Dybala is an extraordinary boy but he is not even 24 and has great room for growth. You just have to train and stay focused
the Italian said, indirectly repeating Nedved’s words, as if telling his Argentine star to go back to putting football at the top of his priorities.
It is difficult for Dybala to play at Bologna, but he is certainly available. Also, I still have to choose whether to play with two or three central midfielders. Juventus need the best Dybala and as soon as possible we hope to have that back
Allegri also said.
