Juventus and Italian captain Gianluigi Buffon spoke to RAIsport after the 1-0 victory over Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Genova.
“It was the best Genoa of the season, rather than the worst Juventus. Genoa played the whole game with a great amount of physical energy. If we look at the glass half full, I think it did well because we know how to suffer[and win].”
He then shifted his focus to talking about his current Juventus.
“I’ll play if I can be comfortable, otherwise, it’s right that you don’t play. This Juve plays very good football, it has a beautiful philosophy of the game, and you should thank our coach. In this Juve there are so many charismatic people who were able to create a compact group, unique between Italians and foreigners that also helps you in trouble a lot and never gives up”, He said.
“To reach Zoff? It’s a great achievement, and it makes me a bit uncomfortable because he is a legend and an icon in the memories of the fans…The fact of being alongside to him I’m proud of but it makes me think if I’m suitable”
The Captain then shifted over to talking about his comeback.
“The operation that I had to the back was not a day of enjoyment in the operating room, it is a something delicate, I had a long rehabilitation, and it took me a little time to get back into shape, then at the end of the year, I returned”
When asked about Cassano on the national team, he responded:
“The CT [Prandelli] makes the choices, should he decide to take into consideration the idea of calling up Antonio Cassano, he has all the rights [to do so]”.
