Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala reckons Liverpool are one of Europe’s very best sides and is delighted The Old Lady didn’t draw us in the Champions League.
The Argentine was speaking about his side’s upcoming tie with Atletico Madrid, a Spanish side he labels alongside Liverpool as the hardest draw left in the competition.
“The Champions League is the main objective for us this season,” he told Telefoot.
“And we’ll do everything we can to win it.
“Atletico Madrid are, along with Liverpool, the worst side we could’ve picked in the draw.”
Not long ago Liverpool were not even competing in the Champions League, and now world-class players are labelling us as one of the favourites to win it.
What Jurgen Klopp has done to our club and team is truly extraordinary.
Liverpool play Bayern Munich in the Last 16 and hope to be in the draw for the quarterfinals, where perhaps we could face Dybala, our former midfielder Emre Can and Cristiano Ronaldo.
That would be a mouthwatering tie if there ever was one, but first we have to do our job domestically in the Premier League.
Dybala is only 25-years-old and would be a terrific potential addition for Liverpool this summer, but according to Calciomercato, he’s not on the market.
