For the captain of the Old Lady, Juve has no taboo at the european level, as shown by its history in the champions League.
Juventus Turin lost in the final of the champions League against Real Madrid last June 3 (4-1) two years after to have lost against Barcelona at the same stage of the competition (3-1). From there, to see a major problem ? Gianluigi Buffon considers that it is not.

The micro TMW Radio, Buffon has thus delivered his opinion on the issue in a comprehensive way : “Cardiff has confirmed that, contrary to what people thought in the past five or six years, Juventus has no taboo at the european level. If you reach the final twice in three years, this means that you do not have big problems. The only problem we have is losing the finals, but it is also true that when you reach this level, you have to consider the defeat”, said the captain of the Old Lady, rather confident for the future : “I think Juve have a solid base to work and this reassures us, for us and for our fans. The more experienced players among us must continue to give the best, as we have done in recent years, allowing those who come to express themselves so that we can all continue to pursue this dream.”
The World 2018, not necessarily the end of the adventure for Buffon
About the case of Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has refused to extend his contract at AC Milan, Buffon did not want to say too much about the man who is considered as the future of Italy in the position of goalkeeper : “I do not give advice, because I’ve always done my own mistakes and would add not more chaos to the situation. However, I had a small talk of 15 minutes with Gigio. I can’t tell you what we said. I don’t know if he will remain at Milan, but I told him just to do what makes him happy.”
Buffon should be present during the World 2018 in Russia, if Italy qualifies and would be very happy to play a sixth tournament, which would be a record. “I want to give my best, because I am sure that I can still give this, so I’m curious to see how this season is going to happen. I would like to stress that I never said that I wanted to end my career with the World Cup. I said that I hoped to win my chance to play in another World Cup”, concluded the porter.
