Marotta: ‘Too much Dybala talk’

Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta says ‘there’s too much talk about Paulo Dybala’ after his starring role in the 2-0 win over Atalanta.

The Argentine scored one and assisted the other in the Bianconeri’s victory on Sunday, but Marotta believes the media focus too much on the 21-year-old.

“I’ve already said to Allegri, when a player arrives from the provinces they must have time to grow and acclimatise,” he said to Mediaset Premium.

Sunday night witnessed two of Serie A’s title pretenders throw down a marker in the race for the Scudetto, writes Richard Hall.

The home side had 5,000 whistles to welcome Mohamed Salah back to his old hunting ground, the memory of his refusal to extend his loan still fresh in the memory.  It was perhaps no surprise that the Egyptian would break the deadlock as he curled in a superlative shot after only six minutes. Rudi Garcia’s men then went two up thanks to Gervinho but the Romans did not improve on their advantage deciding to sit deep and counter attack.
