Dybala to wear Juventus No. 10 shirt

After receiving the coveted No.10 shirt of Juventus for the 2017-18 football season, Argentine forward Paulo Dybala has called the honour "a childhood dream come true" ahead of the Italian Super Coppa match against Lazio on Sunday.

Paul Pogba, who now plays for English Premier League (EPL) club Manchester United, was the last Juventus player to wear the No.10 shirt before.

It is a move that further reaffirms the Bianconeri's faith in Dybala, who has been linked to Barcelona following Neymar's move to PSG this summer.

In taking on the No. 10, the Cordoba native, 23, joins an illustrious group of players.

The jersey - vacant since Pogba left for Manchester United past year - has also been worn by legends such as Omar Sivori, Michel Platini and Roberto Baggio and is recognition of the Argentina international's contribution since arriving from Palermo in 2015.

More recently club favourites Carlos Tevez and Pogba have been honoured with the iconic jersey.

This will be the first time in his career that he pulls on the number that has become synonymous with compatriots like Diego Maradona, Juan Roman Riquelme, Ariel Ortega and Messi.

Dybala used the No. 9 as a teenager with Instituto, the number he retained with Palermo before switching to 21 upon arrival at Juventus Stadium.

The Serie A giants announced on Wednesday that the Argentine will be swap the No21 jersey, worn by the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo, for the legendary No10 shirt.
