Adolfo Dybala is the late father of Argentine football star Paulo Dybala who plays as a forward for Serie A club Roma and the Argentina national team.

A Polish blood 

Adolfo’s father, Boleslaw, was from Poland. He lived in Krasniow before he was sent to a Nazi labor camp during the second world war. 

He then headed towards Argentina, where he spent nights sleeping in the cornfields and nearly died until someone found him. 

According to Paulo, his father Adolfo was more Polish, and so do is his middle brother. 

He is still keen to know about his Polish heritage and also tried getting a Polish passport, but some of his grandfather’s documents were missing due to which he made an Italian passport from his mother’s side. 

Paulo was just four when his grandfather died.

Married to his wife

Adolfo married his wife Alicia de Dybala in a private wedding ceremony. From their marriage union, they gave birth to their three children. 

They owned and ran a lottery shop for a living. Their eldest son Gustavo Dybal tried considering football but soon realized that football was not what he wanted. 

He ended up becoming a businessman. Likewise, their second eldest, Mariano, was never interested in football. 

After his untimely death, Alicia and her family pushed Paulo to continue to play football who had almost considered giving up football. 

Alicia fully supports her son Paulo and is influential in making an important career decision.

Among his three sons, Adolfo was clear Paulo could fulfill that dream seeing him kicking a football at the age of two. 

He would take Paulo to the training back and forth, driving 70 kilometers where Paulo trained at the second division, Instituto de Cordoba’s training center La Agustina located in the northern outskirts of Cordoba.

Lost his life to Cancer

Before he could see his son rise and become a professional, he lost his life. Adolfo was diagnosed with intestinal cancer in early 2008

The family was devastated by his death in September of the same year. Paulo was just 14 when his father took his last breath. 

It was tough for him to continue playing football, and he even considered ditching it because of the emotional trauma he was going through, but he realized the dream was not only his but his father’s too, who saw his dream in Paulo

Recalling Adolfo’s final words, Paulo’s former coach Walter Obregon said Adolfo knew he was ill and said the only thing he wanted for his son was to continue to be motivate, to continue to play at a high level, and asked him not to let Paulo let up and relax.

His son is shining like a star

Adolfo would have been proud to see his son shining as a football star who is living his dream today. 

Paulo returned home at 15 after the death of his father and left home again at 16 before making his debut at 17 with his hometown club Instituto Atletico Central Cordoba and created a record by becoming the youngest goal scorer after scoring 17 goals in 40 matches
