Paulo Dybala was visibly distraught as he said goodbye to Juventus fans, with the supporters jeering President Andrea Agnelli and his directors for pushing La Joya out.
His contract will expire on June 30 and, after seemingly reaching an agreement in December, the club withdrew the offer and preferred to let him leave as a free agent.
Dybala never disguised that he wanted to continue in Turin and he held on as long as he could before the emotions spilled out.
Juventus had several initiatives to celebrate Giorgio Chiellini’s farewell after 17 years, but practically ignored the fact it was Dybala’s last game too.
His teammates ruined that by throwing the Argentina international into the air, at which point he let it all come out.
Every time President Agnelli or the directors appeared on the screens inside the Allianz Juventus Stadium, the crowd jeered loudly, blaming them for pushing Dybala out.
Many fans were seen crying and Dybala looked moved as well.
The 28-year-old played his last game at the Allianz Stadium against Lazio on Monday and was subbed off after 78 minutes.
The whole crowd gave him a standing ovation and Dybala briefly sat on the bench before taking one last walk around the pitch to say goodbye to his fans after seven years. The Argentinean spent a long time signing autographs and taking pictures with every fan and was still busy with them when the game ended after a late Sergej Milinkovic-Savic equaliser.
