Pavel Nedved dubbed the current Juventus side a team of “superheroes” and praised Dybala for playing much better.

The Vice-President spoke to media at the opening of a new art exhibit in the J-Museum on the historical depiction of football in art, specifically comic books.

“In keeping with the theme of the exhibition, we see our squad as full of superheroes,” said Nedved via Football Italia.

“We hold on tight to our players and believe we have a very strong squad. It’s true, Dybala hasn’t scored as much as he did last year, but he is playing much better and I am very happy with his performances.”

Nedved admitted the Sunday game against Sassuolo is going to be tricky, as Juve have hit problems lately by crashing out of the Coppa Italia to Atalanta and drawing 3-3 with Parma.

“Sassuolo does not represent a crossroads, it’s just a game worth three points that we absolutely want to win.”
