Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala revealed that a call from Jose Mourinho’s helped him make his decision to move to the capital club faster.


A little about the topic

After the Argentine completed his transfer to the Giallorossi, he was offered the number 10 jersey, but Paulo turned it down out of respect for club legend Francesco Totti. Instead, Paulo Dybala opted to wear No. 21 for the upcoming season, the same number he wore at the Bianconeri. The attacking midfielder is already in Portugal, where Roma are holding their pre-season training camp under manager Mourinho. After signing a three-year contract with an option for a fourth, Paulo is eager to bring the Giallorossi back into the Champions League after last season’s success in the Europa League.


What did Paulo Dybala say?

The Argentine footballer wanted to stick with 21, the number he is tied to, as he knows the responsibility and pressure that comes with the number 10 jersey in the Giallorossi. Paulo Dybala stated that the director suggested that he take 10, which is very important here for what Francesco Totti has done. According to Dybala, this shirt must still be his. Paulo thanked them, because there should be respect and responsibility for such a shirt.

The Argentinian says that maybe one day he will wear it, but today he is happy with 21. This is the number he is associated with and with which he started to win. Paulo testified that Jose called him and explained his ideas, which convinced him to choose the Giallorossi ahead of other options like Milan and Inter.

It was a lot of things. Calling the coach and manager and talking with the owners. These were very important things that gave him so much confidence. The coach was one of the main reasons, he was clear with his ideas. According to the Argentine, they all know him for what he has done and for what he will do. They talked a lot, it was a good conversation. He has been fortunate to play with the greatest players in history and now Paulo Dybala can say that he also works with one of the best coaches.
