Dybala Mask Celebration Explained As Star Reveals Juve Future…

Paulo Dybala's now famous mask celebration was born out of a penalty miss and defeat, and Juventus fans will be hoping to see plenty more of it in the player's immediate future.
 
Take a closer look at Dybala's new tools in the gallery above!
 
The 25-year-old Argentina international is currently preparing to take on Mexico in a friendly this week, with his form alongside Cristiano Ronaldo remaining on track – having scored six goals in 14 games so far this season.
 
He is still waiting for his first goal in national team colours, though, and maybe La Albiceleste will finally get to see his famed celebration against the Mexicans in a few days' time. But where exactly does the Dybalamask come from?
 
 
"The celebration was born after I missed a penalty in the Supercoppa Italiana against Milan that made us lose the final," the Argentine star explained at the launch of his new boots, the adidas COPA.
 
"I went on holiday really disappointed for what had happened, so I tried to move forward. I am a fan of Gladiator movies, and always saw that they used masks to go and fight and those things. So I said to myself that in the next game, if I scored, I had to celebrate like a gladiator.
 
"It was then where the mask was born and started, and until this day, I take it with me."
 
When questioned on his future with the Bianconeri, the young forward gave the answer his side's supporters wanted to hear, saying: "I don't think about the market. I am very happy in Juventus and I am in a great place, competing with very important things, so I don't see another option."
 
Meanwhile, regarding his new adidas footwear, with which he's hoping to score even more goals, "La Joya" said: "A boot of this quality is incredible. I will try to wear it with honour, like I have been, and try to represent it to the best of my ability, giving it my all.
 
"I have always said that one of the most important things is to work hard, and knowing what you want to dedicate yourself to. If that is to football, give everything to football."
