Paulo Dybala, after having closed last season as the best player in Serie A, has experienced the start of this with several difficulties. The thigh injury he suffered in August removed him from the first commitments, then, once he recovered, the match with Napoli (in which he was going to start) was not played and a gastroenteritis stopped him again with the National Team. Yesterday, in the tie between Juventus and Crotone, the Argentine did not play for a minute, something that, deep down, nobody expected.
Pirlo explained that the forward “only trained for 10 minutes on Friday and has not played for three months”, but the player, according to 'La Gazzetta dello Sport', he would not have liked the decision to take him to Calabria so as not to jump into the field. And that, La Joya, explained it to the manager Fabio Paratici, to whom he told that, perhaps, it would have been better to leave it to Turin to better prepare for the Champions League debut against Dinamo, on Tuesday in Kiev.
This morning also The controversy fueled a 'like' of his on Twitter to a message that questioned Pirlo's decision, disappeared shortly after it went viral. One more small case for the technician, who must already deal in these hours with the criticism for the draw against the newly promoted Crotone.
Without Cristiano, who still struggles with the covid, recovering the best Dybala will be essential for the next commitments. And just to avoid more risks, Pirlo perhaps decided to leave him on the bench at Ezio Scida.
