Paulo Dybala has spoken at length to Argentinian television, shedding light on important issues such as the reduction in players' salaries at Juventus and his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Dybala, in a chat with the Argentine journalist Juan Pablo Varsky while he recovers from corona, explained, amongst other things, how the Juventus pay cuts came about.

He explained that everything started with Chiellini. "Chiellini, who is the captain, spoke to the president and then with us. He called me and told me that the club was asking us for help because they don't have any earnings today," Dybala began.

"An agreement was reached and he signed the statement together with the president. Obviously we spoke about him in the group chat of the whole team and there were differing opinions. There are even players who were one or two matches off activating certain clauses and we don't know what is going to happen," he continued.

"It's difficult for everyone to agree and even more so in such a delicate topic so therefore those which have been here longer spoke, we shared ideas from other groups who are in a similar situation and we reached the conclusion that this was the best thing to do," he added.

But that was not the only thing he talked about. He also talked about his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, the star player of the team. "On a personal note, he pleasantly surprised me," he stated.

When he arrived at Juventus, there was lots of expectation because in the Champions League, we had been eliminated by Real Madrid and there were several arguments during the match, even with him," revealed. 

"As a person he's an excellent guy, very friendly on and off the field, he is always willing to speak and listen as well, something which surprised me because sometimes, when they are such important players, they are not like that," he said on the Portuguese star.

He even revealed a curious anecdote with him on a journey. "Once we were travelling, I was sat next to him and I said to him that in Argentina we hated him a bit because of his figure, because of how he walks," Dybala said.

"He laughed and told me he was used to being criticised for those things, but that he how he is," the Argentine added while laughing.
