The Argentine was the third Juventus player to have contracted coronavirus after Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi.
Following the news broke out of Paulo Dybala contracting coronavirus, the Argentina and Juventus star has come out describing his current condition. The 26-year-old also became the third Juventus player after Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi to contract the pathogen and have described his ailment saying, “I could hardly breathe.”
Paulo Dybala, along with his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini tested positive for the virus and continued to quarantine themselves at their home in Turin. Dybala, however, had been self isolating himself from March 11, after teammate Daniele Rugani was tested positive.
Paulo Dybala has now spoken to Juventus’ official youtube channel and discussed about his present physical and mental condition.
“I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better,” he said on Wednesday.
“Now I can move better, walking and trying to train. I could hardly breathe, I couldn’t do anything after five minutes,” he added.
“My muscles ached. Fortunately, Oriana and I are better now,” Paulo Dybala further revealed.
The Argentine forward joined the Turin-based club in 2015 from Serie A rivals Palermo. Paulo Dybala also opened up about his move to the Old Lady as he quipped, “I didn’t think twice about accepting, the first thing I did was hug my mum.”
“I remember it as if it were yesterday: I was at my house in Palermo, there were many teams interest in me, but I was waiting, I didn’t close the door to anyone,” he added.
“One day after lunch, the phone rang, and it was my agent, announcing that Juventus would call us,” he signed off.
