Paulo Dybala said the Number 10 jersey is “an honour, a sense of responsibility and of belonging to the history of a great club like Juventus.”
The former 21 was given the iconic shirt yesterday and wore it for the first time at the Juventus Allianz Arena in Turin this afternoon.
“When they asked me to change my shirt number, I waited and thought if it was right to leave the 21 that was – and still will be on international duty – a number I care about a great deal, which allowed me to lift many trophies and belonged to top players like Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo,” wrote La Joya on Instagram.
“But the Number 10 is special. It’s an honour to wear it, as it carries a sense of responsibility and of belonging to the history of a great club like Juventus FC.
“It was on the backs of so many Bianconeri champions: Omar Sivori, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero, Carlos Tevez, Paul Pogba.
“This is why for me today, having the Number 10 shirt on my skin is not just a childhood dream come true, but also an even stronger commitment inside of me to bring my team to victory in every game, in every competition and for every trophy.
“Paulo Dybala 10.”
