Dybala: ‘Juventus need to improve in attack’

Paulo Dybala admits Juventus can be ‘happy with the point’ against Inter, but warns they ‘need to improve in attack.’

Serie A | Inter 1-1 Juventus: Dybala pen decides Derby d’Italia

The Bianconeri snatched a last-gasp equaliser with Dybala’s penalty, after VAR alerted the referee to a high Denzel Dumfries foot on Alex Sandro that was just inside the box.

Edin Dzeko had opened the scoring early on, reacting quickly on the rebound when Hakan Calhanoglu’s strike bounced off the woodwork.

“We are Juventus, we always play to win, but we were up against a very strong side and considering the way the game was going, we can be happy with the point,” Dybala told DAZN.

“We definitely need to improve in attack, because if we only try to win by one goal, then we will struggle if they score against us. However, if we need to win 1-0, we can do that too.”

This was La Joya’s comeback almost a month after a muscular problem, the latest in a series of setbacks.

“I wanted to do my best for my teammates, the fans and everyone. I had a lot of injuries that are really annoying and I have not enjoyed being on the sidelines.”

Dybala was asked how he sees himself as a leader of this team, especially with the contract extension seemingly imminent.

“I think after many years here, and spending so much time learning from the greats, you inevitably mature and end up helping the younger players. I feel my moment has come and I try to help the team.”

    They should be offered a free trial in the PL for 1 season and we will see Liverpool batter this bottler club 10-0

    Absolutely pathetic and slow watching this geriatric team

    “We definitely need to improve in attack,”

    And midfield. Locatelli is the only decent player they have in the engine room. If they had a better, more creative midfield, the attack would fare a lot better.

    @Chris…

    Meaning the 1-0 Juve win vs. Chelsea in the CL last month? That is the 10-0 battering in the PL you are discussing.

    Remember, selfish Ronaldo left, so the team sacrifices more without having to apoeasing the primadonna.

    To me Loca and Betancur are too similar. McKinnie, please send him to MLS and Dallas FC where he would feel at home, literally and figuratively. Arthur, beh, not sure how I feel about him yet.

    Juve are missing a classic trequartista. Creativity in the middle of the park is lacking.

    After this year of seasoning at crummy Genoa is complete, Juve need to bring home from his loan spell, Nicoló Rovella. Take a chance on youth for a change.

    No need to improve, just train to take penalties, looks like this season it will be enough

    Hey Vittorio Chelsea have won as many 2 CL titles in 10 years. The last time Juve won it was in the stone age.
