Dybala is still recovering from coronavirus after testing positive for the fourth time in six weeks, and he told Brazilian singer Anitta in an Instagram interview for Adidas just how much he was itching to ‘put my boots on and run’ again.

“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.”

With so much downtime, the Argentine says it has let him reap the benefits of yoga.

“I’ve been practicing at home, since I had the chance to bring some training gear home and we don’t know when practice will resume, so I need to keep up with it.

“Being isolated at home for such a long time made me feel like trying new things. For example, I found a new passion – yoga. I love it and I realised it’s been helping me a lot.”
