Allegri: 'Dybala case is closed'

Paulo Dybala “has apologised and the case is closed,” assured Max Allegri, insisting there’s no split with the Juventus star.

There had been tension after La Joya left the bench to go straight into the locker room after Juve had completed all their substitutions, not waiting for the final whistle of the 3-3 draw with Parma.

This prompted speculation he was at a crossroads, with interest from Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

“Dybala has apologised, as was only to be expected from an intelligent lad like him,” said the Coach in a Press conference.

“The club gave him a lot of responsibility with the Number 10 jersey. Paulo has understood the situation, so the case is closed.”

Allegri also disputed suggestions Dybala was being played out of position to accommodate Cristiano Ronaldo.

“He has always started and finished moves, it’s just this season he missed or forced a save where last term the ball went into the net. I listen to all this chatter about tactics and it amuses me.

“Tomorrow either Dybala or Federico Bernardeschi will start against Sassuolo. It’s a decision between those two.”
