Paulo Dybala “wanted a game like this” after his first Champions League hat-trick as Juventus crushed Young Boys 3-0.
The Argentine also hit the woodwork, should’ve been awarded a penalty and was fouled for Camara’s second bookable offence.
“I wanted to have a game like this. I think the team had the right approach, we did very well to stay focused throughout,” La Joya told Sky Sport Italia.
“Obviously, a player always wants to play. Last season I had the opposite, as I started with a lot of goals and then lost my way a little.
“Being left out made me work harder and get back into shape, so I am taking full advantage of that now.”
Cristiano Ronaldo was in the stands due to his Champions League suspension, but Juve confirmed their 100 per cent record after nine games this season.
“We were without Cristiano, and at times it is easier with him in the side, but we have to be a great team both with and without him.”
