New Palermo star Paulo Dybala is only 18, but eager to make an impression in Serie A. “I don’t want to be compared to Sergio Aguero.”
The Argentine was signed from Instituto for €12m and presented to the media this afternoon.
“I thank everyone for the wonderful welcome. My objective is to have a great season with the Rosanero,” said the forward.
“During the negotiations I was always calm, as I knew my agent would do everything for my best interests. In a club like Palermo, I can really grow as a player.
“I also met with Coach Giuseppe Sannino and he really made a good impression on me.”
Dybala has been nicknamed the ‘new Sergio Aguero,’ though is unimpressed with the moniker.
“I like to be considered Paulo Dybala and that is all. I don’t want comparisons with Aguero.”
