Juventus striker Dybala: Why I said Messi and I couldn't play together

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has spoken of his relationship with Barcelona star Leo Messi.

The pair are Argentina teammates, though the Juve star has declared in the past they can't play together.

Dybala said, “My words about him? Maybe I should have said it differently, I never try to criticize my teammates.

“I also talked to him about it. Tactically we are very similar. I would have liked to give more to Argentina and achieve better results both in the group and on a personal level.

“I played little in the World Cup and the America's Cup, but I have always respected the decisions of the coaches, playing for the national team is prestigious."
