Paulo Bruno Exequiel Dybala was born on November 15, 1993, in Laguna Larga, Cordoba, Argentina. He is known as one of the talented players with a qualified skill in playing with a ball. Dybala is also often given the nicknames as La Joya or a gem. Along with Juventus, Dybala has won the A series and Coppa Italia titles. He is predicted to be one of the best football players in the next few years.
The Argentine man, who is familiarly called as Dybala, was born to Adolfo Dybala and Alicia de Dybala. Dybala was born to a family that has simple conditions. Since his birth, his father has predicted that Dybala will become a football player. It is either only a hope or a mere boast, what Adolfo Dybala said at that time made Dybala truly become a reliable footballer.
Dybala’s father is from Kraśniów, Poland. And according to the origin of the Dybala family, the grandmother came from the city of Naples, Italy. But due to something that happened during World War 2, most of his family chose to move to Argentina. Therefore, Dybala has 3 nationalities, which are a Polish, an Italian as well as an Argentinean.
Dybala has two brothers named Gustavo Dybala and Mariono Dybala. Gustavo Dybala, who became Dybala’s oldest brother, had tried his luck to become a football player but failed. Meanwhile, Mariano has never been interested in football. He prefers to let himself enjoying the world of gymnastics.
Dybala himself began his football career at the Instituto academy. He studied at the club from 2003 to 2011. After that, he was promoted to the Instituto senior team and underwent his professional debut in the Argentina second division league, Primera B Nacional, at the age of 17.
Dybala claimed that his father became an important figure in his life. The father is willing to shuttle Dybala to a football training. Having been playing for a season, he managed to score 17 goals in a total of 40 matches. In the process, he also beat the previous record held by an Argentine legend Mario Kempes as the youngest goal scorer.
The player who greatly idolized Juan Roman Riquelme then continued his career at Palermo in 2012. After leading Palermo to become B Series champions, Dybala appeared neatly in A series with 13 goals and 10 assists. His slick performance made Juventus recruit him at a price of 32 million euros which was quite expensive for players at his age.
Dybala said, the role of his family, especially his father’s, gives a big contribution to his current success. As Dybala is now getting mature enough, he can choose which country he will defend. And finally, Dybala prefers Argentina as his citizenship.
He is currently in a relationship with Antonella Cavalieri. Cavalieri stated that she was amazed by Dybala. She said that Dybala was a special person who was able to make a big impact on her life. Dybala met Cavalieri at a restaurant in Argentina. They have been in a relationship since 2015. His ideal woman recently works as a model.
As if he silenced his cries and the mockeries from his childhood friends, he managed to become one of the most famous professional footballers. He is known and called to be a football star in the future. Even Juventus, the team in which he is now, also enjoys the talent that Dybala has.
Because of his success, on one occasion he had ever met a world singer, Rihanna.
Paulo Dybala gave a special birthday present for Rihanna. The two then took photos together, with the singer resting her head on the footballer’s shoulder. This Argentine player, who was born 25 years ago, took the time to meet Rihanna to celebrate her birthday. The Barbados singer repeated his 29th birthday on February 20, two years ago. On this occasion, Dybala also gave a special gift in the form of his Bianconeri jersey. He did not forget to also put his signature on its back.
Behind his beautiful performance when playing in the green field, Dybala is also a film enthusiast. He claimed that he really liked the Gladiator film. In an interview, Dybala said that he had watched the film 30 times. According to him, the Gladiator was an inspirational film as it is taught us about the meaning of cooperation. And it is not a rare thing for Dybala to apply the film lessons to the green field as he believes that football is about teamwork.
This film was also a film which eventually inspired Paulo Dybala to celebrate a goal. The celebration which commonly known as Dybala Mask was inspired by the Gladiator mask.
Not only inspiring his celebrations, but the film also turned out as the inspiration for the two-circle tattoo on Dybala’s left arm. He mentioned that the tattoo was a bracelet that the Gladiators used when fighting. Besides his circle tattoo, Dybala also has a tattoo on the left side of his body which wrote his mother’s name in Arabic. Meanwhile, the crown tattoo on his left leg was given by a Cordoba tattoo artist named Noel.
Until now, Dybala has become a classy player with various prestigious titles, such as A Series, Coppa Italia, Italian Super Coppa and many more. His outstanding performance has brought him in equal with other world-class players.
