Dybala’s move to AS Roma came after months of speculation. Juventus decided against renewing his contract. Given that Beppe Marotta, the man who brought Dybala to Turin from Palermo, was now the Nerazzurri’s sports director, it had long been assumed that Inter Milan would be Dybala’s next club. However, Inter Milan leaped at the chance to re-sign Romelu Lukaku, leaving Dybala with a very difficult choice.
Roma was quick to sweep in. Mourinho wanted Dybala as the standout signing for his Roma project. Only a few sets of fans might be against his move now. Dybala has been the perfect partner alongside Tammy Abraham in a 4-3-2-1, usually playing as a ten. In the eleven matches he has played in all competitions, Dybala is already Roma’s highest scorer with seven goals. On top of that, he has also provided two assists.
Dybala expresses his views on Mourinho and Allegri
In an interview with Football Italia, the Argentinian International talked about his previous and present coach. Dybala had worked with Allegri in Juventus. The interview was recorded after the Europa League defeat against the Spanish side Real Betis.
“I believe that there are a lot of similarities between Allegri and Jose Mourinho, and others ways not,”
“With Mourinho, we speak a lot, and we have a better rapport with respect to the one I had with Allegri; with him, we didn’t agree on a lot of things, but always for the good of Juventus.”
“I think they are in some ways very similar, in others not so similar. I have a much closer rapport with Mourinho. We talk more often and discuss ideas.”
“On the field, they are fairly similar, as the coaches focus on defensive work and controlling the match.”
Dybala is enjoying his spell in Rome just before the World Cup. He will definitely be an essential part of the Argentina World Cup squad.
