Why I told Cristiano Ronaldo that I hated him – Dybala

Roma forward, Paulo Dybala has revealed he told Cristiano Ronaldo that he “hated him as a kid” during their time together at Juventus due to his Argentine roots.

The two players spent three seasons in Turin before Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021.

During their spell together, they won two Serie A titles and several domestic cups.

“The rivalry between him and [Lionel] Messi is deeply felt in Argentina and as a child, of course, I was always on Messi’s side.

“One time we were on a plane to go play a game. At one point he came to me to talk about football and other things.

“We used to discuss our lives in general and so I said to him ‘I basically hated you as a kid’,” Dybala told presenter Diletta Leotta on DAZN’s ‘Scacco Capitale’.
