Pirlo excludes Dybala from undergoing surgery

Andrea Pirlo, coach of Juventus, excluded this Friday that Argentine Paulo Dybala has to undergo surgery to solve the problem in the medial collateral ligament of the left knee that has prevented him from competing since last January 10.

“As for Dybala, we will study the situation with the medical staff, there is no danger that he will have to operate. He had a control and now we will study the best way for him to return to the group,” Pirlo said in a press conference the day before of tomorrow’s league game against Hellas Verona.

“We thought it would be somewhat lighter, instead the times lengthened,” added Pirlo referring to the fact that initially it was estimated that Dybala would only need twenty days to recover.
