GPTV SPORTS DESK: Coronavirus survivor and Juventus star Paulo Dybala on Friday revealed how he “struggled to breathe” after contracting the virus.
Paulo was one of three Juventus players to catch the virus along with Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani, who both had no symptoms, announced the Argentine international last Saturday.
“I feel better now after some strong symptoms,” Dybala told a local media.
“A couple of days ago I was not well, I felt heavy and after five minutes of movement I had to stop because I was struggling to breathe,” added the 26-year-old football star.
“Now I can move and walk to start trying to train because when I tried in the past few days I started to shake too much.”
“I gasped for air and as a result, I couldn’t do anything, after five minutes I was already very tired, I felt the body heavy and my muscles hurt.”
“Now I’m fine. My fiancee Oriana (Sabatini) has also overcome the symptoms,” said Paulo Dybala.
All sports in Italy have been suspended as the novel coronavirus has claimed more than 9,000 lives in the country.
Paulo Dybala has scored 13 goals in all competitions this season, including in league leader’s Juventus’ last game against Inter Milan before Serie A.
“The goal against Inter was the greatest emotion, (Aaron) Ramsey provided the perfect assist – it’s a pity that there was no public,” Dybala added.
