Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said Roma are the “right club” for Paulo Dybala after the Giallorossi officially announced the forward’s arrival.

After months of links over a move to Inter, Roma announced Dybala had joined them on Wednesday.

And Allegri, who signed the Argentina international at Juventus said it was the right move for him and wished his former player well.

Speaking at to DAZN, Allegri said: “I believe it is the right club for him and I wish him the best of luck. He is a player who has given a lot to Juventus and I think he will do very well at Roma.”

Asked to elaborate on why he felt Roma were the right club, he added: “He is a very technical player, alongside [Tammy] Abraham up front. Then you have [manager José] Mourinho, who is very good.”

Dybala joined Juve in 2015 at the end of Allegri’s first season in charge of the Bianconeri.

They won the league and cup double in their first campaign together, repeating that feat in each of the next two seasons – even reaching the Champions League final in 2017.

In the final season of Allegri’s first spell with the club, they settled for just the Serie A title but failed to add a single trophy in 2021-22, when the ex-Milan coach returned to the club.

4 thought on “Allegri: Roma the right club for Dybala”
  1. For once PhD Max is correct. Roma have a young team and he will be their leader. Dybala was never going to thrive under Medieval Max, playing pack up ball after 2 mins, play for 0-0 and hope to get a lucky goal here and there.

  2. I guess it’s not a terrible fit. I hope he does well with Roma…I wonder how inspired his form will be considering how botched his negotiations were with Juventus.

  3. Agree with both. Allegri is a terribly negative coach and I just pray that Bremer will not be added to the list. As for Roma, its a step down for him without hating on them, but a step down he needed. Dybala got a reality check as he is not worth super player status and the money demands were ridiculous. At Roma, players will look up to him as he has won big prizes and will definitely bring a winning mentality into the locker room. As long as he can stay mature, fit and listen to Mou, he could do very well.

  4. Sorry Lord, but you’re wrong on this one. Dybala joined Allegri in 2015 and thrived under him in his first 3 seasons and played terrific football – most of his 101 goals were under Allegri. Dybala’s only poor season under Allegri had more to do with Ronaldo’s presence than anything else – Dybala struggled to adopt to having a narcissistic hog playing alongside him.
