"Dybala was brought in to be the new Messi"


Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus coach, said on Tuesday that Paulo Dybala “needs to be himself again because there was a moment when he was carried away with being the new Messi.”

Dybala will not continue with Juventus next season after failing to reach an agreement to renew a contract that will expire on June 30. Leaving ‘Jewel’ to ‘vecchia signora’ after winning five ‘scudettos, four Coppas and three Supercoppas.

Allegri, his coach until now, believes Dybala, 28, has a “divine” quality, but a player can’t imagine him being different. “Paulo needs himself again, there was a moment when he was carried away by the fact that he is the new Messi. A player cannot imitate or think that he is like others,” the Italian coach said in an interview with DAZN.

“Dybala will give more”

“He still has a lot to offer because he has exceptional technical qualities and performs in a divine way, but he needs to refocus on his physical and technical qualities,” Allegri added.

The defeats of Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini leave the leadership of the Turin team in the hands of Leonardo Bonucci, who also took Chiellini’s testimony to the Italian team. But for a long time Allegri declared that Italian Manuel Locatelli and Dutch Matthijs de Ligt were the future.

Surprised by Danilo’s leadership

“Giorgio (Chiellini) is important to this group, as are Gigi (Buffon) and Marchisio, who are talking about the Italians. For the future we already have two leaders, De Ligt and Locatelli. Manuel is a great signer and could be the future captain of Juventus, has the technical and moral qualities to stay here for many years ”, explains Allegri, although Brazilian Danilo pleasantly surprised him in this regard.

“When Danilo speaks, he’s never holy and puts the team first. A true leader is quiet, he has to speak a little bit and should always put the team ahead. And if you do that, it’s the team that recognizes you as a leader ”, taught the technical.

In addition, Allegri spoke about the star of his project, Serbian Dusan Vlahovic, and a possible tactical change for the next campaign: “Dusan can also be a leader in his own way. He is honest, always he wants to win. He will be a charismatic leader on the pitch at the character level. Now we will see a Juve with two wingers … “

The results, what matters

Allegri has received criticism for Juventus’ game, but he prefers to focus on the results: “Playing well is a relative, abstract concept. Everyone wants to do it, but in the end we just remember the bicycle kick made by Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin The winner can never play badly, but the good play and the loser are criticized because the result does not come “.

And despite finishing fourth in Serie A, he did not feel inferior to any of his rivals: “Milan, Inter and Napoli have advanced us in the standings, but they are not superior to us. If not already we won in direct confrontation meaning we lacked something in terms of character or drive. “

Messi, the nailed thorn

The former Milan coach (2010-14) also took up his career as a coach, where he only had one thorn in his side.

“I’ve trained champions like Cristiano Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Ronaldinho, Robinho, Cassano, Seedorf, Pirlo, Buffon … What I haven’t trained yet is Messi,” he said.
