Mourinho wants Dybala on the bench for Torino showdown before World Cup break

Andy Mattioli

Following last night’s disappointing draw at the Mapei Stadium, Jose Mourinho gave his team a day of rest ahead of the last matchday before the international break with Torino on Sunday.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport, it is highly unlikely, if not impossible, to see Paulo Dybala play considerable minutes on Sunday.

The Argentine international is on the verge of completing his recovery and returning to group training, with the hopes of being included in Luis Scaloni’s list for the World Cup in Qatar.

In the meantime, Mourinho wants to have Dybala on the bench just to give a morale boost to the team before the break.
