Zico admits being a fan of Juventus striker Paulo Dybala

Brazilian great Zico admits he's a fan of Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.

Zico sees similarities between himself and the Argentina international.

He said, "He is a player who moves in my position: when he plays there, he plays spectacular, creates goals and scores.

"Such a player cannot stay too far from the penalty area."

Zico also said: "I don't like comparisons, I think my football was totally different. Today's system takes away the number 10 from the world of football.

"Unfortunately in modern football there is more wing development, not so much the half-point, as in my time, I think of Del Piero and Baggio, who made the difference in football."
