Ex-Juventus coach Lippi: Don't compare Dybala with Del Piero

Former Juventus coach Marcello Lippi says Paulo Dybala must be allowed to blaze his own trail.

Dybala has been declared the heir of Alessandro del Piero.

But Lippi says: “He is a great player like there are many others, but talking about 'inheriting' with the champions of the past is not doing Paulo any good.

"He can certainly be considered at the level of those who have worn this glorious shirt."

Lippi has been linked with a return to Juve.

But he adds: “No, there has never been any real contact. Just rumours and rumours."
