Daniele De Rossi shares update on Paulo Dybala ahead of Brighton return leg

Paulo Dybala exited the pitch in the second half versus Fiorentina.

The Argentine was reportedly fatigued and, according to manager Daniele De Rossi, does not seem to be at risk of missing the upcoming return leg of the Europa League Round of 16 with Brighton.

In his post-match presser, De Rossi shared an update on the attacker.

“Dybala asked for a change but it’s not serious. It’s understandable: in his career he hasn’t always played so many games for so many minutes.”

“I always ask the players to be responsible and tell me when they need a break: sometimes playing five more minutes can result in two months of absence. Dybala did well to come off, and Baldanzi did well when replacing him.”
