Paulo Dybala has expressed his willingness to give his all to the success of Juventus suggesting the fans should focus on the sacrifices he has made for the club.

Dybala has seen his game time reduced in Juventus since Ronaldo joined the Italian giants, which has led to speculations of an exit.

The Argentine striker recently opened up on his career so far and his journey to Juve.

“I didn’t think I’d have a career like this or experience what I’m experiencing now as a footballer,” the 25-year-old revealed via Football Italia.

“Growing up I followed football a lot. I played it because I enjoyed it. My friends and I wanted to be Ronaldinho, Ronaldo.

“But I never thought: ‘Today I must give my best, otherwise I won’t become anyone.’ I didn’t think about it, not even during my first few years as a pro.

“At 17 I was agitated. It wasn’t easy, but my teammates and the staff helped me a lot.”

The forward went on to join Juve three years later, but a report on Thursday claimed the Bianconeri were willing to give him up for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah…

“It was a special day. I was on holiday with my brother and friends. The contract had arrived while I was at the beach,” he continued.

“I went back to the hotel, signed it and got back to sunbathing. After the two goals I scored at Barcelona, the fans started chanting my name.

“I said to myself, ‘look what you’ve done! Now keep going!’ I had to find the strength to continue and give more to the fans to earn their affection.

“I want them to see the sacrifices I make to make them happy. I try to do my best. If I do then I’m happy.”
