The former Italy number one confirmed he is leaving the Old Lady at the end of the season and spoke about his experience at the Allianz Stadium after a short spell with PSG.

“What I’m sure I gave to Juventus was the maximum of professionalism, seriousness and reliability,”

Buffon told Sky Sport Italia


“I think I was, in its entirety, a person, a boy and a serious professional, and one you always can count on.”

 and said the last two years were difficult for him to adapt to his new situation at the Allianz Stadium.

“I think these two years, apart from the fact that my role as a player was not central, were not taken for granted by someone like me,”

Buffon continued.

“It was not so easy to be able to adapt.

“For me it was a test, also to measure myself as a person. And I’m happy because I think I’ve overcome it brilliantly."
