Marcos Villalobo, author of the biography of Paulo Dybala entitled "La Joya", spoke of the Juventus striker to the microphones of BBC.

"The Dybala mask? As a fan of the movie 'The Gladiator', Paulo decided to wear Maximus' mask, to prove himself that he is a warrior, one who never gives up," he said.

"The nickname La Joya? Dybala was the rough diamond of the youth team at Instituto. The first time I mentioned this nickname, he laughed and said that he liked it," Villalobo added.
