Paulo Dybala on Inheriting the Shirts of Juventus Legends


I think that sometimes
words cannot describe what it feels like. I try to honour this number
like all the others I’ve worn. At Juventus,
it was not easy being number 21 because of the players that have worn it
and its history. Zidane, Thuram, Pirlo. When I arrived here, I didn’t know that Pirlo
was going to leave that summer. I didn’t want him to leave,
I wanted to play alongside him. I arrived here having worn
the number nine at Palermo. I did ask if I could wear the number nine but Álvaro Morata had it at the time. Then they told me
that number 21 was available. When they told me 21 was available,
I thought about it and asked myself, “Paulo, are you sure
you want to wear that number?” And I thought, yeah, why not? I think that you have
to face challenges head on. And at the end of the day, I always
believe that the most important thing when you put the shirt on
is what’s on the front, the badge. That’s why the number and name
are on the back. It’s a beautiful number, I really like it. I also wear it for the national team, for Argentina, my country. Later on, I received an invitation to… to wear what I think is
the most important number in every team around the world. Wearing the number 10 shirt is incredible,
it’s a dream come true. It’s a big responsibility,
it’s a lot of things. I think that sometimes
words cannot describe what it feels like. The responsibility… everything. Not just on the pitch, but off it as well, because you’re a role model
to so many young kids and so many people. I try to do it to the best of my ability,
as natural as I possibly can. I wear it with the same respect
that I had for the number 21 shirt, and I try to honour this number
like all the others I’ve worn. Being part of this class of players… …is incredible. Hopefully, I will continue to wear it
for many years to come. Obviously, I know that’s not easy,
nothing’s easy. But I always try to do it to the best of my ability. A lot of the time, I try to forget
that I’m wearing the number 10, I try to relax and not worry about
the responsibility that’s on my shoulders, but instead I try to play freely,
like I did when I was 10 years old.
