Juventus Sporting Director Beppe Marotta has stated that Paulo Dybala needs to be left alone to grow and become a champion. The Argentine has struggled in the last week’s and has been the talk of the media for his woeful performances.

“There’s a lot of pressure on him at the moment,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’ve got used to him giving extraordinary performances. Therefore, when he puts in an ordinary performance, it’s branded inadequate.

“In reality, he’s a player who only turns 24 years on November 15. Therefore, we have to let him mature so that he becomes a champion.

“When you’re young, there are times when your performances aren’t at their best.

“Transfers? We have no deep problems, but we have to look ahead, knowing that we need to be competitive and seize any opportunities that the market offers us.

“It’s not easy, and when you have to sign a player for Juventus. It’s not easy to find them.

“It’s also true that we need to reflect on this squad, in terms of age, but we also realise that we have great professionals.

“In my role for Juventus, my objective is to get to the top, and this Champions League is almost an obsession for us.

“We managed to reach two Finals, but we couldn’t lift the trophy. This must be a reason to get to Kiev, and maybe with some luck we can lift the trophy.

“Scudetto? Not winning it would be a sporting failure. Given the quality of our squad, we believe that we must be candidates to win it again.”
