Paulo Dybala Vows To Give ‘His Maximum’ After Joining Roma. In his first news conference following the signing of a three-year contract, Argentina forward Paulo Dybala stated on Tuesday that he wants to use his experience to help Roma’s young team.
Winners of the Europa Conference League After Dybala‘s contract with Juventus expired, Roma, who finished sixth in Serie A last season, confirmed last week that they had acquired him.
Nemanja Matic, a 33-year-old former midfielder for Manchester United, has also joined Jose Mourinho’s team this summer.
The 28-year-old Dybala, who joined Juventus from Palermo in 2015 and enjoyed seven years of trophy-laden play in Turin, has struggled with injuries the past two years.
Paulo Dybala Vows To Give ‘His Maximum’ After Joining Roma. After spending so much time at Juventus, a group that is accustomed to success and instills it in you from the start, I obviously have experience, he said.
“Since we are a young squad, I will try to contribute everything I have even in the locker room with my team to provide that experience to help to win, help to be optimistic in the difficult moments there will be throughout the year.”
The last of Roma’s three Serie A championships came in 2001, but with Mourinho—who has eight domestic league wins to his name—the team hopes to contend for the crown once more.
However, Dybala, a five-time winner of the Italian Serie A with Juventus, downplayed hopes of aiding Roma in ending their 21-year wait.
He said, “I think it’s early, no, to talk about the Scudetto. As you said, everyone has a lot of desire right now. We can have greater ambition in the future because Roma won a very, very significant title last year.
Under Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri, Dybala was utilized in the center and out wide on the right last year. I’m willing to play whatever position that Mourinho requests, says the player.
Before the transfer was official, Dybala said he spoke with club great Francesco Totti about it, though not recently. He said, “He spoke to me about Roma with great affection.”
