Paulo Dybala’s celebration is the coolest in world football.
There, we said it.
Understated, simple, photogenic… the Argentinian No10’s trademark post-goal pose will be iconic by the time he hangs up his boots.
We saw it at Old Trafford last night as Juventus beat Man United 1-0 in Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest ‘homecoming’.
But what’s it all about?
Speaking via Facebook, of all places, Dybala explained to his fans in 2016 how the ‘Dybalamask’ came about: “Dybalamask is really simple: it’s the mask of a gladiator,” he said.
“When we struggle, sometimes we must wear our warrior mask to be stronger, without losing our smile and kindness.”
He went onto say that he ‘transforms into a gladiator’ whenever he scores, with his warrior spirit helping him through times of hardship.
We reckon we’ll be seeing it a few more times this season, don’t you?
