After Paulo Dybala, an Argentine international sustained an unexpected injury during Roma’s 2-1 victory over Lecce, Jose Mourinho provided an update on the player. Taking a penalty for Roma resulted in Dybala suffering a muscle strain. The Argentinean international’s goal against Lecce in Serie A made it 2-1 and gave Mourinho’s team the victory. The forward was eventually pulled off the field, and his manager thinks he may have sustained a catastrophic injury that will prevent him from playing in the World Cup.
Paulo Dybala was awarded a penalty kick, and he scored by shooting with his left foot into the bottom left corner of the goal.
Mourinho said to DAZN after the game, “I say bad, but I think very, very awful.” We probably won’t see him again this year, in my opinion, and after chatting with Paulo, even if I’m not a doctor.
Dybala left the field right away and was later seen sitting on the bench, looking upset, with an ice pack strapped to his leg. The 28-year-old has experienced injury problems recently, and his most recent issue occurs only six weeks before the World Cup in Qatar.
Lecce is the only team in Serie A that Dybala has consistently scored against when playing teams he has played more than once. He has now scored three goals against Lecce in three games.
In addition to fighting to recover in time for the World Cup, Dybala must also wait in suspense to learn the extent of his injury. Later in October, Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni is anticipated to announce his starting lineup. Argentina is scheduled to play Saudi Arabia on November 22 to open its campaign.
