It is clear that Buffon has not been shy in his praise of the Italy international.
“He is a fighter.
He is a true champion.
He will be the world’s best,” Buffon said.
“He’s been the best player in Italy for a long time and I’m sure he will be as long as he wants.
I’ve known him for years and he’s a great person and he will have a long and happy life.
He’s a man of great character, he’s intelligent, he knows how to work and is a great footballer.”
It was not just Buffon who praised the player, as he also spoke about the future of the Giallorossi.
“It’s clear that we need to be stronger and stronger.
We need to fight for the Champions League.
And we need more people to fight,” Buffa said.”
In the past, we have always lost games but I think this year we’ve got to be more determined and show more ambition and more of a desire to be champions.”
I think we need people who will be there every day.
That’s my motto and I believe that.
We will do it, we will achieve it and we will win everything.
It will be a long journey but it will be worth it.”
