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:
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."
