Dybala Regrets Making Messi Comments

Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala, who recently tested positive for COVID-19, has admitted he regrets making certain comments about FC Barcelona superstar and Argentina colleague Lionel Messi.

CR7 Over Messi? These 10 Big Names Think So

Last year, the Bianconeri playmaker surprised many when he said it was "difficult" playing alongside Messi on the international stage, remarks he has been forced to address on a number of occasions since.

In a recent interview, Dybala suggested that he wishes he had not said what he said at the time, and that he sorted things out with the Blaugrana captain with a conversation.

"My words about him? I should have said it differently," he said in an interview with the Argentina national team's official website.

"There were people who wanted to understand it with bad intention. I never tried to criticise a partner, I just wanted to improve something that was happening.

"I would have liked to give more to Argentina and achieve better results both in the group and on a personal level.

"Even I spoke with Leo, because both of us are very similar tactically. Even with (manager Lionel) Scaloni, we worked so that we did not clash on the pitch."

Ronaldo Names His Dream Team, Snubs CR7

While Dybala has been one of Serie A's standout players since his time at Palermo, he has contributed to just seven goals in 29 appearances for Argentina.
