Gigi Buffon talks about ‘his’ Juventus and the Bianconeri’s prospects for this season: “Juve – explained the former goalkeeper, guest of the programme Supertelephoto on Dazn– is going through a period in which every week there is a case. So it’s impossible to get bored. The best medicine in situations like this are performances and victories like those against Lazio because they give confidence and relegate controversies to the slums. Juve could have competed for the Scudetto already last year, but due to the vicissitudes they faced, they were never in the running. Now he has the same team and I see few such competitive squads. Inter are perhaps more complete, but they have commitments in the Champions League which will weigh on them, while Allegri will be able to prepare one match a week.”
BONUCCI AND POGBA – “What do I feel like saying about the affairs of Pogba and Bonucci? It’s sad what happened to both of us because I know them and I knew Juve well, given that now apart from the coach and a couple of figures everything was turned upside down. Not knowing the people who now lead the company, however, I don’t want to spit out judgments“.
ON EUROPEAN CUPS – “Since many top-level players went to the Arab championship, the European movement has become balanced. Inter and Milan can win against anyone on the day, also against City and Real. Having the chance to lift the Champions League is wonderful.”
INTER-MILAN 5-1 – “The Milan derby? Milan were coming off three consecutive victories and in my opinion they did well not to lose their character, to play the match with their beliefs. Inter deserved the victory, which in the end was clear and overwhelming, but the The details gave the address to the meeting, all in favor of the Nerazzurri. There isn’t such an abysmal gap between the two teams as the 5-1 would imply.”
