Dybala happy to repay Allegri faith

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala was delighted with his team’s performance in their 2-0 win over Atalanta, and stated he has always enjoyed the backing of coach Massimiliano Allegri.

The striker scored a goal and assisted another in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Juventus Stadium, as the champions found their goalscoring touch after consecutive goalless stalemates with Inter and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Allegri had come in for criticism for not using the €40 million summer arrival from Palermo enough, but the 21-year-old did not feel his impressive display against Atalanta proved a point over his playing time this season

“I talk to my team-mates and don’t read what is written in the newspapers. I’d like to thank the fans for their affection,” the new Argentina international told Mediaset Premium.

“I’m happy, we put in a great performance and kept the ball throughout. It’s a deserved victory.

“I’ve got the full backing of my boss and team-mates. When I play I always give everything I’ve got.”

Allegri was angered by Juve’s decisions in the final third during the midweek Champions League draw against Monchengladbach.

But with the Bianconeri having returned to winning ways, was pleased with what he saw on Sunday.

“It was a good game from the lads, we kept a clean sheet and played some decent stuff in patches,” he said.

“Dybala must operate between the lines. He’s young and needs to improve but has what it takes to be a top player.”
