Paulo Dybala spoke to the media ahead of the Champions League Group D clash with Barcelona.
BARCELONA: Like you said Barcelona lost an important player like Neymar but they have subbed him for another important player, you have to respect them for who they are, their history, their name. They haven’t let in a goal this season.
MESSI: Luckily I play with Messi in the national team, I learn many things. I’m very happy, doing well, this year I decided to play with an important number that means a lot for this club (No 10).
DID HE HAVE AN OFFER FROM BARCELONA? The truth is that I don’t know, it would be a question above all for the club’s people, nobody said anything to me. The only thing that they told me is that they want me to be a part of this project for a long time and I was very happy for this.
CAN HE BE AS GOOD AS MESSI? The truth is for me it’s a big pleasure, i’m working well, doing things well, when the people see something in me that could be in the future. keep working, grow day to day, to be at this level you have to improve constantly.
No player has reached Messi, Ronaldo. if i want to be at this level i have to keep working hard, improving, it will not be easy.
First, Cristiano and Messi have been playing a lot longer, it’s nothing easy, their numbers are incredible, It’s difficult to reach that. i’ve not spoken with Messi, we were focused on Argentina.
It’s a bit difficult for me to play with him because I play in his position. I have to adapt myself to him. It’s a difficult moment for the Argentina national team but we will surely be at the World Cup.
