Paulo Dybala says he can not “promise” that he will stay at Juventus for the rest of his career and admits he misses former team-mate Paul Pogba.
“I must admit I miss Dani Alves and Pogba,” he told France Football. “Alves has an amazing vision and is really self-confident, he is one of the best players I’ve ever seen. Pogba is a friend of mine, we were on very good terms on and off the pitch.
“I can’t promise I will stay at Juventus forever. It does not depend on me but I don’t even want to say that this will be my last season here. I want to win everything now, football is strange you never really know what will happen in the future.”
Dybala has made a strong start to the new season, scoring 14 goals in 18 games in all competitions, but the forward is not fazed by comparisons to compatriot Lionel Messi.
“I’d like to battle it out with Neymar for the Ballon d’Or but he is closer to that achievement than I am,” Dybala added. “I need to work to improve and win trophies.
“I’ve always admired Ronaldinho but Messi is like Maradona for me. It’s a honour to play alongside him in the national team. I don’t feel the pressure of being the new Messi, it’s not a bad thing for a footballer, it only depends on how you take it.”
