Davids feels Messi comparisons 'hurt' Dybala

"Dybala will grow more and more, but there's still a long way to go for him [to reach Messi's level]". Both unexpectedly lost a key player during the summer transfer exchanges, with Barca's Brazilian Neymar making that spectacular €222 million move to PSG whilst Juve defensive lynchpin, Leonardo Bonucci, moved to AC Milan for €42 million.

As reported by Sport English, the former Palermo man spoke about his admiration for the multiple Ballon d'Or victor, and feels "lucky" to play with Messi in the Argentina national team, whilst also stating his pride of being given the illustrious number ten shirt at Juventus.

"If you want to hurt Dybala, continue with these comparisons", Davids told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He's an important player in his team, in Europe and in the world, we know that", said the coach. This is hardly a surprise, there is hardly anything new about Messi playing the match victor role for Barca.

The 23-year-old appeared to control the ball on his back in the build up to his Argentine compatriot Gonzalo Higuain's goal, even whilst being under pressure from a defender.

"It's a bit hard for me to play with him because I play in his position".

And Allegri was pleased with the way Dybala is fitting into the team's scheme of things.

During their Serie A match against Chievo Verona on Saturday, Juventus shifted from their 4-2-3-1 formation to a 4-3-3 with Miralem Pjanic driving the midfield along with Stefano Sturaro and Blaise Matuidi, who got his first start.
