Paulo Exequiel Dybala is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Juventus (but is set to leave the Turin based club) and the Argentina national team.
Nicknamed “La Joya” (“The Jewel”), Dybala began his senior club career in 2011 playing for Instituto de Córdoba, before signing for Palermo in 2012, at age 18, where he won a Serie B title.
Three years later, thus in 2015, Dybala signed for Juventus from Palermo and won five league titles and four Coppa Italia.
A quick, creative, elegant, and agile player, with excellent technical ability and a low centre of gravity, Dybala is known for his powerful and accurate shots from outside the box, dribbling skills, balance, and close control in limited spaces.
Dybala’s playing style has drawn comparisons with compatriots Sergio Agüero, Javier Pastore, Carlos Tevez, Omar Sívori, Diego Maradona, and Lionel Messi, as well as former Italian forwards Vincenzo Montella, Alessandro Del Piero and Roberto Baggio.
Dybala is also accurate from both free kicks and penalties.
Dybala is also a fan of tattoos and has quite a number on his body, including an Arabic tattoo.
Why does Dybala have an Arabic tattoo?
Dybala got an Arabic script inscribed on his left rib cage near to his heart on 25th December 2013.
In an interview with Argentinian magazine, Dybala said that it is the most important tattoo for him as it is his mother’s name, Alice, inked in the Arabic language.
