Dybala would have loved to play alongside Zidane

‘He was smashing it past me’ – England keeper Heaton on Hudson Odoi

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has admitted that he would have relished the opportunity to play alongside Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane helped the Bianconeri to two Serie A titles during his time at the club, and Dybala would have relished the opportunity to be teammates with the midfield maestro back in his heyday.

The Real Madrid manager is preparing his side to take on Juve in the UEFA Champions League final; aiming to become the first team to retain the title since the 1980s.

Dybala told Sky Sport Italia: "I would love to play with him, we all know his qualities. I admired his technique as he was playing in the field, how he dribbled opponents, doing things with great simplicity and making it all very easy.

"Everyone has seen what a player he was, now he is proving to be good also as a coach."
