Juventus striker Dybala: I hope I can play with Pogba again

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has again spoken of the prospect of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba returning to Turin.

Dybala made the comments when discussing a United shirt he swapped with Pogba for after their Champions League encounter.

“I couldn't overlook a shirt like this, of course. It's from Manchester, my friend Paul [Pogba], whom I admire as a person even more than as a football player," said La Joya.

“I had the chance to share great things with him and hopefully I can repeat that someday. But regarding the game that day, it was unforgettable playing at a stadium like Old Trafford, one of the most important stadiums in the world. You go in and you feel the atmosphere in the air and you breathe it in.

“They played under [José] Mourinho, one of the most successful managers in history in terms of winning. It wasn't an easy game. We won 1-0 with a goal I scored, although I was a bit lucky because the ball bounced in front of me very close to the goal.

“To score and to win a game in that way makes it even sweeter and to be able to swap shirts with your friend is one of the most beautiful things you can do in football."
