Sorrentino: 'Dybala for Ballon d'Or'

Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino believes Paulo Dybala “has everything it takes to win the Ballon d’Or” in future.

La Joya put a goal past him in today’s 3-0 Juventus victory, but they were teammates when Dybala first came to Italy for Palermo as a teenager.

“It would’ve been better for us today if he had continued to warm up and not come on…” smiled Sorrentino on Mediaset Premium.

“I am fortunate enough to know him very well and I am therefore not remotely surprised by how well he’s doing. I was able to play with Dybala for two and a half years, so imagine the number of times I had to fly to my right and left in training.

“He can still improve a great deal and will become the best. He has everything it takes to win the Ballon d’Or – I just hope when it happens, he invites me to the party.”

The goal against Chievo was a mazy run through a crowd of defenders to drill home at the near post.

“When Dybala takes on players like that, it’s really tough to anticipate him. A lot of his game is about timing and with that left foot he can do what he wants. It’s all very complicated being a goalkeeper against him.”
