Dybala takes online dig at Juventus coach Pirlo after selection snub

Paulo Dybala has made his feelings known after being left on the bench for Juventus' draw with Crotone on Saturday.

The striker was surprisingly ignored by coach Andrea Pirlo and later complained to football chief Fabio Paratici.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Dybala told Paratici it would've been better if they'd left him in Turin to prepare for their Champions League clash with Dynamo Kyiv.

Then this morning, Dybala 'liked' a social media post criticising Pirlo for leaving him out for the weekend draw. After it went viral, Dybala removed the 'like'.

For his part, Pirlo argued on Saturday night that Dybala "had only trained for 10 minutes on Friday and has not played for three months".
