Dybala wants to be the best amongst all humans

first_imgArgentine forward Paulo Dybala revealed that his objective is not to be better than Ronaldo and Messi, but he does want to be the best among humans.As we’ve all been talking constantly about Paulo Dybala’s struggles to understand each other with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on the same squads, the Juventus player wants to distance himself as far as possible from any comparison with both players.Dybala understands that he will always be under the scope for this because he shares a locker room with the two greatest players who ever lived, and he does well to try and write his own story.Juventus‘ number ’10’, recently granted an interview to the Gazzetta dello Sport, where he spoke about many topics but he couldn’t resist talking about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.About Cristiano, Dybala revealed that he thinks Juventus’ 3-1 victory at the Bernabeu last season might have been the moment when he decided to play with the Vecchia Signora this season.RECORD-BREAKERS!!! 💪💪💪 Juventus have won their first 🔟 matches of the season (all competitions) for the first time in their history!#FinoAllaFine ⚪️⚫️ #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/chGzrFLPUu— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) October 6, 2018“The victory at the Bernabeu gave us more strength and belief. The team went to win in Madrid with incredible determination and grit. My teammates told me that the Real players were really struggling, they would look at each other with confusion because they’d rarely conceded three goals like that.”“I think it was that game that pushed Ronaldo towards Juventus. That’s when he realized our strength and made his choice. He is very intelligent and sees things before others.”“The thing that amazed us about Ronaldo is how normal he is. If you see him on social media and TV, you get a different idea of what he’s like, but really he’s the same as all of us.”“He trains well, is 100 percent concentrated in every training session, but jokes around like everyone else. He makes fun of Joao Cancelo and says his Italian is already better, while he has started drinking mate like us South Americans.”🔊[SPORT via La Gazzetta Dello Sport] |FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).Dybala: “Messi and Ronaldo should be getting worse (for age reasons) but instead they are still doing extraordinary things. They are not normal. My objective is to be the best of the humans.” pic.twitter.com/miVNUPonKR— BarcaTimes (@BarcaTimes) October 6, 2018When asked about Alessandro del Piero’s opinion about him and Kylian Mbappé being Ronaldo and Messi’s heirs, Dybala responded in a brilliant way.“For that to be the case, Messi and Ronaldo would need to be at the twilight of their careers, but they are still doing extraordinary things.”“Messi and Cristiano are beyond the norm. My objective is to be first among the humans. Of the other humans, I like Isco, because he never loses the ball, but Neymar and Mbappé are also excellent players.”“When I was a child, sitting in front of the campfire, I wished that I could win the Ballon d’Or. If you want to improve, you have to set high targets…”🇮🇹 📰 |Front page of Gazzetta headlines an interview with Paulo Dybala:🎙️ | Dybala unleashed:”I’ll be the number 1 human.Ronaldo and Messi are extraterrestrials but after them I want it to be me.My Juventus is now better than Real Madrid.” pic.twitter.com/jq7KWrqbAc— Arjun Pradeep (@IndianRegista) October 6, 2018last_img read more
