Marco Lollobrigida confident: “Roma ahead of Milan and Napoli.”

Reached exclusively by the microphones of, Marco Lollobrigida commented on Roma’s purchase of Paulo Dybala as follows: “It’s an amazing, mind-blowing blow. I think few believed in it, few thought that this club could make such a coup. Mourinho last year, Dybala this year: this is a solid company, with serious people working. This is a very important blow.”

At first it seemed that the Argentine had decided to wear the number 10 jersey: “The 21 is very important because of its history and the 10 should be respected, knowing who wore it, which was Francesco Totti. Then the future cannot be predicted, but I think there is also an act of superstition behind this choice, the fact of keeping a jersey that in any case allowed him to establish himself.”

The signing of Paulo Dybala has brought a generous dose of enthusiasm to the Giallorossi environment, even if he has not shined in the last period at Juventus: “In my opinion he has suffered injuries, suffered Covid and also suffered a bit from the personality of Cristiano Ronaldo, but these are my considerations. He is an unquestionable player: here in Roma he will be able to find new blood, he will be welcomed like a king, with an extraordinary coach, with a strong group that has already won a cup. I think Dybala will reach 20 goals this year.”

In closing, the point on the Giallorossi market: “If Roma takes a midfielder and a defender, I think they can even compete for the Scudetto. I think Juventus will be in front with strong players who will shift the balance-such as Pogba, Bremer and Di Maria-but there Allegri has no more alibis. Inter are very strong but they have a coach who has shown that he is not Antonio Conte: everyone blames the goalkeeper Radu against Bologna, but in that game Inter, in the second half, did not make any shots on goal. In my opinion Roma right now is third, more than Milan, which has made little market but has a great coach, and certainly more than Napoli,” Lollobrigida concluded.
