Buffon Reveals What Cristiano Ronaldo Can’t Give Juventus This Season
Paris Saints-Germain goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon has revealed the only thing forward, Cristiano Ronaldo cannot give Juventus this season.
Ronaldo signed for Juve earlier this summer from Real Madrid in a stunning £105million deal.
The Portuguese captain is already off the mark for the Old Lady, scoring in a pre-season friendly against Juventus B on Sunday.
Buffon, however, believes that Ronaldo can’t give the Serie A champions sorrow, adding that the 33-year-old will give Juve all what he gave the previous clubs he played for.
“I hope Ronaldo can give what he’s given for all the teams he played in,” Buffon told Sky Sport Italia.
“Certainly, he won’t give Juventus the sorrows he’s given us in recent years.
“Juventus can’t spring any surprises: they have a skilled board and President, plus their history, team and fans are so great that if it they don’t win, they go close.”
Buffon added: “I felt surprised at the beginning.
“I am used to following Juve and I like the club, but since that moment I liked them even more.
“I won’t say it was the key point in my decision, but every detail helps. Maybe. Of course, it helps when you see the people like you, the supporters and club like you, the feeling is completely different.
“Unbelievable. I remember every day, that never happened to me before.
“In the Champions League against Juve, a quarter-final, you score a goal and see everyone in the stadium applaud you. It was an unbelievable feeling.
“I don’t have a precise moment when I decided [to join]. During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano.”
Meanwhile, Ronaldo has opened up on his decision to leave Real Madrid for Juventus, citing the standing ovation fans gave him when he blitzed them apart back in April.
