Only a few hours away from the start of this year’s edition of the World Cup, Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni found the time to praise Paulo Dybala’s decision to join Roma in the summer after leaving Juventus as a free agent.

“It was a very intelligent choice because Rome is a spectacular city. I think he can become a true idol in a place like that,” Scaloni said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He found a coach capable of getting the best out of him. I really like this change of environment for him.”

“Managers of national teams like me always look at how players adapt to their new clubs, and Dybala fits perfectly at Roma. He’s done very well to adapt.”

“He’s an extraordinary person, and very important to the success of the group. We love him.”
