Juventus vice-president Pavel Nedved has told Paulo Dybala to sort out his private life and focus on his football after the forward's form dipped. Dybala, 24, was dropped for Juve's 0-0 draw with Inter Milan on Saturday night as coach Massimiliano Allegri reacted to his recent run of just one goal in eight games by recalling Mario Mandzukic and playing him in a three-man attack alongside Gonzalo Higuain and Juan Cuadrado. Nedved says Dybala, who scored 10 goals in the first six games of the season, is getting too distracted by off-field matters. "He's 24 and it's normal that he has ups and downs, and obviously he's a player who could get to the very top," Nedved told Sky Sport Italia. "I'd advise him to focus on his football and make lots of sacrifices in his private life and train to the maximum. "Allegri treats everybody equally and he's always done that at Juve, so he's not been particularly hard on Paulo. He treated Higuain and Mandzukic the same way because he always wants the best from all of his players, and he does right."
