Juventus striker Dybala: I'm surprised how much I've missed football

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala admits he's surprised by how much he misses football.

Dybala is in quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus.

“To tell you the truth, I never thought I was going to miss playing and practicing that much," he admitted.

“I feel like I need to practice, see my teammates and friends and at least touch the ball because practice at home isn't the same on my own.

“I need to put my boots on and run, score a goal... As I always say, when you are passionate you make everyting twice as important.

“It's been too long without practicing. We don't know exactly when we'll be back. It's not like a holiday, when you know you'll be resting for a certain amount to time.

“I know my only job is to relax and keep in good shape, but nothing major as opposed to now.

“It started as being one week, then one more, then one more, so I practice here but it's not the same."
