Trezeguet: “Dybala can win the Ballon d’Or”

October 9, 2017

Juventus legend David Trezeguet believes Paulo Dybala can win the Ballon d’Or one day and confesses his biggest regret is not winning the Champions League with the Bianconeri.

Trezeguet has watched La Joya grow over the last few seasons and believes he has what it takes to lift the award that has been previously been won by Pavel Nedved and Zinedine Zidane.

“Dybala can win the Ballon d’Or, as I think he’s showing the right kind of character,” Trezeguet told

“I often hear of comparisons between Dybala and Leo Messi, but I think that is important for him and can help him to grow.

“As for Higuain, he has been very consistent over his career and you can tell a champion during his most difficult moments. He’s seemed better physically of late and this means he still wants to train hard and show what he can do.

“It’s likely that some time on the bench did him good, but now Juventus need to improve as a team.”

“Regrets? My biggest regret is that Champions League Final.

“I was only 24 years old, and when we lost I thought another opportunity would be along soon. Unfortunately, it never happened.

“The greatest success was the World Cup with France in 1998, because when you are a child with the ball at your feet, you always think of what it’d be like to lift up that trophy.

“I worked with Carlo Ancelotti early on, but in my view the best Coach I ever had was Marcello Lippi. It was an honour for me to play alongside Alessandro Del Piero, because he worked with Gianluca Vialli, then Pippo Inzaghi, yet with me we became the most prolific pairing in Juventus history.”
