Buffon: “A test of strength”

The Bianconeri number one hails the team’s display in tonight’s 3-0 win over Chelsea: “We’ve sent out a message to Europe and Italy”

Gigi Buffon paid tribute to the Bianconeri’s show of strength in tonight’s 3-0 Champions League Group E victory over Chelsea.

The 34-year-old said: “It was a great victory, a true test of strength for how we achieved it, convincing in our play and spirit. We’ve sent out a message to Europe but also to Italy. If anyone had any doubts we’ve well and truly responded to those.

“We still haven’t secured qualification for the next round, but even if we were to unfortunately go out we would do so having shown our ability to play against anyone. We’re back to being competitive and that’s what we were aiming for.”
