Platini: ‘Dybala more like Maradona than me’

Former Juventus hero Michel Platini thinks Argentine forward Paulo Dybala ‘looks more like Diego Maradona than me’.

Platini picked up two Scudetti, one Coppa Italia and a European Cup during his five years with the Old Lady and retired after having won three Ballon d’Or and three Capocannoniere titles.

Dybala has been likened to the 65-year-old, but the former UEFA President has claimed he is more similar to Napoli legend Maradona.

“His style reminds me of [Omar] Sivori,” Platini told Corriere della Sera. “But he looks more like Maradona than me.

“I’m not saying he has the talent of Maradona, his own is more than enough.”
