Dybala: Juventus Won’t Let Me Play In Olympics

share on:

Dybala has stated that Juventus will not allow him play in the Olympics for Argentina.

Gerardo Martino left the Juventus forward out of the 23-man-squad set to feature in next month’s Copa America.

Despite the Juventus striker’s absence, Argentina still possess a squad boasting the attacking talents of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Angel Di Maria, Nicolas Gaitan, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain.

Dybala confessed he had been banking on a place in the Copa America squad, with Juve having told him they would not make him available for Rio due to a clash with the start of their Serie A campaign.

“I regret not having been called up for the Copa America because I already knew the club would not release me for Rio,” he told DirecTV.

“I wanted to be in the United States, but you have to respect the coach’s decision.

“It is difficult to form an attack with all these phenomena.”

Dybala scored 23 goals in 46 appearances for Juve this season as the Turin giants became the first Italian side to complete a Serie A and Coppa Italia double for the second successive season.
