Paulo Dybala given Juventus' No. 10 shirt: 'It's an honour to wear it'

Paulo Dybala
Paulo Dybala joins Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero as stars to have donned Juve's No. 10 shirt.

Paulo Dybala has been handed Juventus' No. 10 shirt for the 2017-18 season, and has called the honour "a childhood dream come true" ahead of the defending Serie A champion's Italian Super Coppa match with Lazio on Sunday.

The Argentina international, who signed from Palermo for €40 million in 2015, previously wore No. 21, which was made famous by club legends Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo.

Paul Pogba was the last Bianconeri to player to wear No. 10 before his then-record transfer to Manchester United last summer, and the 25-year-old Dybala has now also joined Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero and others in donning the shirt.

He wrote on Instagram: "When they asked me to change my shirt number, I waited and thought if it was right to leave the 21 that was -- and still will be on international duty -- a number I care about a great deal, which allowed me to lift many trophies and belonged to top players like Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo.

"But the No. 10 is special. It's an honour to wear it, as it carries a sense of responsibility and of belonging to the history of a great club like Juventus FC.

"It was on the backs of so many Bianconeri champions: Omar Sivori, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero, Carlos Tevez, Paul Pogba.

"This is why for me today, having the No. 10 shirt on my skin is not just a childhood dream come true, but also an even stronger commitment inside of me to bring my team to victory in every game, in every competition and for every trophy."
