By Football Italie football reporter Gianlui Buffon says he will not give up on his goalkeeping ambitions, even if the time and money required is prohibitive.
Not only because I’m the best, but because I want to do something with my life,” Buffon said at a press conference at the Guggenheim.
“I want to achieve my dream.
I want people to think of me and what I have done for them.
If you want to be remembered, you have to do it. “
It’s not a time to give it up, I know it’s not something that I want, but it’s something that has to be done, something that’s important to me.
If I get my chance I will take it.” “
We can have a good season, I’m looking forward to it.
If I get my chance I will take it.”
Buffon is the fourth-youngest goalkeeper in Serie A history and he said he is already looking forward “to next season.”
“I want a new challenge.
It’s the best I could do, but in Italy I’m 18 years old, not 17,” he said.
“My ambition is to play at the highest level and be the best goalkeeper in the world.
I know I have to take it seriously and I think I’m ready.”
‘There is no point in playing in Italy’The goalkeeper has scored 13 goals in 19 appearances this season, with seven of them coming since he joined Juventus.
“There is nothing to stop me from making the step up to the highest, and it’s a big step for a young goalkeeper.
If there’s a time for me to leave Italy, then I’ll do it,” Buffont said.
He has made six appearances in Serie B for Juventus, with the goalkeeping coach saying he wants to remain at the club.
“He [Buffon] is a young kid who wants to improve.
He has already done so much, and he has no intention to leave,” said Giuseppe Motta, the head of the technical department at Juventus.”
But it’s too early for me, for the moment.
He needs time to grow and develop, to develop in his technical sense, to make sure that he will be at the top for the long term.”
Juventus have yet to play a competitive game for over a month, and Buffon admits he will miss out on the Europa League.
“It’s a bit frustrating.
But the only way out is to fight for everything, and we have to fight,” Buffone said.”
There’s no point playing in Europe, I won’t let this be an excuse.
I’ll have a great season and I hope I’ll be playing for Juventus.
I will always be here.”
Motta also said that Buffon, who has won two Serie A titles with the Turin club, is “a young player who wants something to prove”.
“I hope he will keep working hard, and hopefully he will improve,” Motta said.
