Del Piero: ‘Dybala can surpass me’

Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero says Paulo Dybala has “all the time” to beat his free-kick record.

The Bianconeri’s all-time top-scorer is third in the all-time list of free-kicks scored in Serie A with 22, behind Sinisa Mihajlovic and Andrea Pirlo, who are tied on 28.

The former forward scored all of his for Juventus, having spent his entire top flight career in Turin.

So far Dybala has hit nine in Serie A, eight for the Old Lady, but Pinturicchio believes the current Juve number 10 can surpass him.

“Who is better at free-kicks?” Del Piero considered, speaking to UEFA’s official website.

“What do you want me to say?! I did my time though, and Paulo has all the time to surpass me.

“I must say he’s doing well in that regard too, I wish him the best.”

Del Piero was then asked about Gianluigi Buffon, and his quest to win the Champions League.

“The whole world is waiting for Buffon to win the Champions League, but for my part I can say that he’ll always be number one.”
