Italian journalist says Pogba has been worse than Dybala

July 14, 2022 - 1:00 pm

Juventus has just brought Paul Pogba back to the club after he left them for Manchester United in 2016.

The midfielder underperformed for most of the time he was in England. However, Juve still considered him good enough to return to the club.

Meanwhile, the Bianconeri allowed Paulo Dybala to walk away freely despite his reputation as one of their most important players in the last few seasons.

The Argentinian was plagued by injuries in his last two campaigns at the Allianz Stadium, but he still contributed to their successes.

The Italian journalist, Fulvio Focolari, wonders why they will allow him to leave and bring Pogba back if the decisions were based on the level of performance of each player.

He said, as quoted by Calciomercatoweb

“Dybala moves everything, with or without Zaniolo , changes the cards on the table. it is quite incredible that Juventus get rid of Dybala for all the problems we know, then bases the whole future on Pogba , a player who has done worse than the Argentine in recent years.”

Juve FC Says

Dybala has not been fit enough to make an impact at the club consistently, and giving him a new deal represented an enormous risk on our part.

However, Pogba has simply not been in the right environment where he can thrive.

Their situations are different, and the midfielder has a better chance of succeeding than Dybala has of staying fit.

      Its the players fault. They dont take their fitness and stretching seriously and play reckless. Dybala were all muscle issues. Easily avoidable with the right pre and post game excersize.

    This is the problem. Its a business. Its about selling jerseys. Fagioli, miretti, and ranocchia are not SHINEY enough. Unfortunaley. There names dont shine on broadway or the hollywood hills. This is the problem. These fans would rather have a foriegner than homegrown talent. Also reason why italian national team is so inconsistant.

    However, on a different note, the journalist is a idiot who knows crap. Dybala and pogba play different positions. Dybala is a forward whom they didnt want because they want to hand the reigns to vlahovic and chiesa. They dont want to confuse the situation anymore. Like they did whe they had dybala and then purchased that team destroying narcasist mr. Siuuuuu. Plus i was never covinced of dybala as a leader. I never saw it in him.

    Pogba is a midfielder that they say needs improvement and stability. He is no longer the main piece. But a vet to help the youth along. Also again they had to sign someone that will sell jerseys. Unfortunaly thats what it is expected of a team like Juve. Plus this is move that is two years in the making. It was going to happen whether dybala left or not.

    What juve must do now is get rid of dead wood like rabiot, arthur, and ramsey anyway possible. And sell mckennie and cuadrado to make some cash for a new right back. Then play fagioli and miretti along with locatelli, pogba, and zakaria.
