    Gigi speaks at the annual event in Milan: "We are close to the top of the table. We are pleased."

    Another prize has come the way of the incomparable Gianluigi Buffon. On this evening it is the "Man of the Year" award presented to Juve's #1 at the "Gazzetta Sports Awards" in Milan.

    Buffon spoke at the event about a number of topics:

    REWARDING WORK

    In addition to the awards won, Gigi finished fourth in the Ballon d'Or voting:

    "I have also finished second, so maybe I am in the descent," joked Buffon. "I am proud, these recognitions indicate that the work I do is rewarding and as long as I will be useful for the cause and can provide motivation I will keep responding this way."

    A GOOD MOMENT FOR JUVE

    "We didn't beat Inter but the results over the weekend meant that we are all still bunched together by just a few points. This championship is becoming thrilling and we are happy to be there in the mix.

    "Dybala? He is our strongest player and I would always have him in the team with me. Paulo is a champion, but he also knows he can become the absolute top player." 

    LOOKING AT TOTTENHAM

    "They're a team to be taken with caution," admitted Gigi. "They are very physical individually and also have five or six options who can cause us problems technically. They bring a fast-paced style to the game on both sides and should not be underestimated."
