Paulo Dybala - Juventus

Dybala angry with Pirlo after being benched against Crotone

Paulo Dybala reportedly had a bust-up with Andrea Pirlo and Juventus executive Fabio Patrici after the Argentinian was left on the bench against Crotone for the full ninety minutes. On Monday Pirlo revealed that Dybala was indeed angry that he did not play, but also insisted that the two had a talk and that he is ready to play against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.

“I talked to him [Dybala] yesterday as I do to everyone else. He was a bit angry for not having played in Crotone but we have to remember that he hasn’t played for three months,” Pirlo told reporters. “He spent 10 days in his room in Argentina taking medicines because he couldn’t train.”

“I took him to Crotone to let him do a few minutes but unfortunately there were 10 of us left and I couldn’t add him. He is available and we will see what to do.” Dybala has yet to feature for Juventus this season after he suffered an injury during the summer break. The forward’s future at Juve remains in doubt as the Bianconeri are yet to start talks on a new contract for Dybala.
