Paulo Dybala received impressive praiseAndrea Pirlo highlighted La Joya
Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo praised Argentine striker Paulo Dybala less than a week after having disaffected him from the classic against Torino because of the footballer's participation in a clandestine party violating the health protocols that govern Italy due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Paulo Dybala's an added value for any team," said Pirlo, praising the Argentine, who scored the goal with which his team defeated Napoli 2-1 on Wednesday in a match that was pending the third date of Serie A, a tournament led by Inter.
"I hope he stays with us," Pirlo said about Dybala, adding that "when you have someone like him at hand you try to make him play as much as possible and when we didn't have him we miss him," referring to the injury in knee that kept the Cordoba inactive since mid-January.
Dybala returned to play on Wednesday against Napoli after three months of inactivity, although in reality he should have done it last Saturday in the Turin classic, but Pirlo decided to disengage him from the squad after checking his participation in a party at his partner's house of team, the American Weston McKennie, who violated the sanitary protocol imposed in Italy to mitigate the effects of the pandemic.
