Dani Alves believes Paulo Dybala will have to leave Juventus one day if he wants to improve his game.
Speaking to Canais Esporte Interativo, the Brazilian offered his opinions on Dybala’s future and revealed the advice he gave to Gigi Buffon in the Champions League.
“Dybala, La Joya…he really is a jewel, a diamond in the rough. I told him that someday, I don’t know when, he has to leave Juve to improve his game.”
“The Champions League? Gigi told me that in all of the finals they played, Juve have never managed to score more than one goal.
“I told him ‘Gigi, if you’re playing Real Madrid, it’s almost impossible that they won’t score at least one goal. If you play Barça, it’s almost impossible that they won’t score at least one goal. I mean it can happen, and it has, some players can have an off day, but they will usually score. If you only score one goal in all of your finals’ – I said, frankly that’s not going be enough to win the Champions League.
“I think the Champions League is just one more title, people get confused with these things: “If you don’t win the Champions League, you don’t make history” – It’s not like that, at all.
“Buffon is one of the greats, a legend, his numbers speak for him. Ronaldo didn’t win the Champions League but Ronaldo, for me, he was…well, words can’t do him justice. So what? Are we gonna doubt Ronaldo, too? Buffon will always be Buffon, one of the best goalkeepers I’ve ever seen.”
