Juventus striker Paulo Dybala was caught snubbing manager Massimiliano Allegri’s handshake offer during his side’s 2-0 win over Sassuolo.
With Juve in a comfortable lead, the young starlet was subbed off by his manager in the 77th minute of the match, but the 22-year-old evidently did not take this decision too well. As he walked off the pitch, he made sure to shake the hands of the oncoming substitutes, but clearly snubbed Allegri’s offered handshake.

As per some reports, top clubs from all across Europe, including Spanish giants FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, are interested in signing Dybala. And this incident has definitely added further fuel to the speculation linking the striker with a move away from the Old Lady.
But according to Allegri, this incident was nothing more than a young player expressing his anger at being subbed off during the game.
“He was angry and this is normal because no one likes to go off,” Allegri told Mediaset Premium after the match. “He had a good performance but had less strength in his legs than [Juan] Cuadrado and [Mario] Mandzukic. Occasionally anyone can be angry with the coach.”
