Cristiano Ronaldo's former teammate has revealed he hated the Portugal captain because of the rivalry with Lionel Messi.
The pair spent three years together at Juventus between 2018 and 2021, winning two Serie A titles, an Italian Cup and two Italian Super Cups.
In an interview with DAZN, Dybala disclosed that he had candidly expressed to Ronaldo that he harbored a childhood animosity towards him due to his country's staunch support for CR7's rival, Lionel Messi.
Dybala on Messi vs Ronaldo
However, Dybala emphasized that despite this initial sentiment, they have consistently maintained a good relationship.
"I spent three nice years with Cristiano, the team was very strong and he added something more.
"There's a big rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo in Argentina. Once, we were flying out for a game, I was sitting at the back of the plane and he was slightly ahead.
"At some point, he came to me, we spoke about life in general for a while, and I told him: "As a kid, I practically hated you.
"We laughed about it and we've always been on good terms."
