Juventus boss Massimo Allegri has had a bust-up with Paulo Dybala and the club’s medical staff that are looking after his rehabilitation, according to a report.
According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Dybala was playing basketball during yesterday’s training session instead of working on his comeback with rehabilitation exercises that had been laid out for him to undergo.
Allegri reportedly asked what Dybala was doing and the striker replied that there was no physiotherapist that could look after him. Then a furious Allegri suspended the training session to have a meeting with both the player and the technical staff – stating that he wanted Dybala focused on his recovery and back as soon as possible.
The former Palermo striker has been out of action since the end of October after injuring his thigh in the defeat to AC Milan. The 22-year-old, who has been tracked by Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea is set to return to action after the international break.
Dybala, who is 23 later this month, has four goals and two assists in 11 games in all competitions so far this season and was reportedly set to sign a new deal in Turin, according to reports last month.
The talented forward is believed to have disappointed a number of his suitors when he signed for Juve from Palermo for £27million last summer.
Speaking after his transfer, Dybala told Sky Sport Italia: “Juventus are the side who wanted me the most.
“They made a real effort to sign me and this is why I made my decision.”
