​​Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has revealed what his battle with coronavirus was like, after he and his girlfriend contracted the illness.


The Argentine international became the third Bianconeri player to test positive for Covid-19 last weekend, after teammates Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi. Both Dybala and his girlfriend, Oriana Sabatini, tested positive and continued isolating at their home in Turin.


​Serie A was the first European league hit by Covid-19, with matches first being played behind closed doors before the season was put on pause.


Dybala took to social media on Wednesday evening to post a picture of himself doing an 'OK' sign along with the caption "estamos bien" (we are good).


"I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better," he told ​Juventus' official YouTube account.



"Now I can move better, walking and trying to train. I could hardly breathe, I couldn't do anything after five minutes. My muscles ached. Fortunately, Oriana and I are better now."


Dybala has had an extremely promising season until now, scoring 13 goals and providing 12 assists to contribute to Juventus' title challenge.


All football suspended at least until the end of April and Italy has been the worst affected European country, with more than 9,000 people having died from the virus so far.


Dybala also touched upon how signing for Juventus was a 'no-brainer' move for him.


“I didn’t think twice about accepting, the first thing I did was hug my mum," ​he added


He concluded, “I remember it as if it were yesterday: I was at my house in Palermo, there were many teams interest in me, but I was waiting, I didn’t close the door to anyone. One day after lunch, the phone rang, and it was my agent, announcing that Juventus would call us."
