Sannino predicts Dybala to be World No1


Former Palermo manager Giuseppe Sannino claims Juventus striker Paulo Dybala is on his track of becoming the best player in the world.

The Argentinian international has played for Palermo (between 2012 and 2015), before moving tot he Turin side. The 23-year-old has been compared to his compatriot Lionel Messi, and netting a double against Barcelona (3-0) during UEFA Champions League quarterfinal first-leg enhanced the attention towards the youngster.

“[Maurizio] Zamparini (previously Palermo owner) was right to compare Dybala to Messi,” Sannino ctold Tuttosport.

“And to see him play against him the other night was a joy.

“And the best part is that he still has great room for improvement: if his growth as a man goes hand in hand with his talent, will become well soon the number one in the world,” the Italian specialist added.
