Here’s Why Paulo Dybala Refused To Wear No.10 At Roma. Following his departure from Juventus, the attacking midfielder joined Roma as a free agent earlier this week. Dybala had a chance to become Roma‘s new No.10. But he elected to continue with the No.21, which he previously wore during his Juve days.

 He said: “The director had suggested that I take 10, which is very important here for what Totti has done.

That shirt must still be his. I thanked them, because for such a shirt there must be respect and responsibility.

 “Maybe one day I’ll wear it, but today I’m happy with 21. It’s a number I’m tied to and with which I started to win.”

In his 293 games for Juventus, Dybala amassed 115 goals and 48 assists. He captured four Coppa Italia trophies and five Serie A championships at the Allianz Stadium.

However, after a protracted contract dispute, he left the Bianconeri. When discussing his choice to sign with Roma, Dybala disclosed a crucial phone conversation with Jose Mourinho.

He added: “It was a lot of things. The call of the coach and the manager and the talk with the owners. They were very important things that gave me so many certainties. The coach was one of the main causes, he was clear with his ideas.

“We all know him for what he has done and for what he will do. We talked a lot, it was a good chat. I was lucky enough to play with the greatest players in history and now I can say that I also work with one of the best coaches.”
