Former Juventus & Italy Boss Claims Gianluigi Buffon Should Have Retired in Turin

Former Juventus & Italy Boss Claims Gianluigi Buffon Should Have Retired in Turin

Inevitably, Buffon was asked about his new teammate Neymar during the ceremony after Brazil's exit from the World Cup and endless speculation regarding the forward's future: "I think it is a hard moment for him and we've been through something like that at some stage of our careers".

"I had always hoped that something would happen", the ex-Italy worldwide added.

Buffon won nine Serie A titles during his time with Juventus and also tasted World Cup glory with Italy in 2006.

"It's a nice time to live in a new environment, I come to Paris with a childish enthusiasm". "I have followed the club's incredible progression in recent years, and I know what dreams PSG and its fans hold in their hearts".

"I've stopped making these calculations because when I was 30 I thought I had two or three more years, then when I got to 34 I thought I had one or two years maximum, then I got to 37, 38 and now I'm 40", said Buffon.

"At the start of the season, we can not immediately target only the Champions League - it would be madness". Buffon and the National team?

NAIJ.com previously reported that Croatia progressed into Russian Federation 2018 semifinals after beating Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties.


"I think that, recently, PSG have been very ambitious and showed continued progress".

Buffon sees PSG as his own challenge and hopes to emerge from it stronger, having played his entire career, until now, in his home country.

"I played only a year with him but I have affection for him", said the veteran goalkeeper.

The Italian goalkeeping legend is leaving Juventus after 17 years to join Paris St-Germain on a free transfer.

"But nobody assured me that I would be number one". "I've always told him "you decide, don't accept any advice, do it your way", and he wants to keep playing".

Yet one mindblowing aspect of the new chapter in Buffon's storied career is he is training alongside Weah's son, Timothy.
