Gigi Buffon continues to be a towering pillar of the club’s success, and his reassuring presence between the sticks over the course of December has today been recognised by the player of the month award awarded to him in Vinovo by lucky Premium Member Massimo Menchini.
Juve’s great goalkeeper led by example as he always does last month: exceptionally consistent and still regularly seen pulling off an acrobatic save despite his 35 years, he conceded just two goals in all competitions in December.
Udinese and Sassuolo both came and went from Juventus Stadium with no goals to show for it, and away from home Buffon also kept a clean sheet against Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
The psychological effect he has on the rest of team’s performances should not be underestimated either. The defenders no doubt feel supremely confident with such an experienced figure ready to leap into action behind them.
Subscribers to the Bianconeri community can vote for the man of the match after each and every game, as well as giving all the players a score rating, and the Members who do so most regularly could be in with a chance to hand out next month’s prize in person.
