Juventus star Paulo Dybala has attacked those who deny the existence of Covid-19 and compared them to “flat earth” believers.
The Argentine international, who spent almost a month in self-isolation after contracting the virus in March, said he had “difficulty breathing” while battling the disease.

The 26-year-old said he was not afraid of getting infected again, but the Covid-19 deniers remind him of what are known as “Flat Earthers”.
“Covid deniers have the same intellectual value as the Flat-Earthers. Let me not add more, ”said the player, reported Football-Italia.
In March, Dybala announced that he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini had tested positive for Covid-19 and added his name to the long list of sports stars affected by the virus.
It took the player more than two months to fully recover and return to Serie A, which only restarted in June.
