After sealing Italy’s third-place Confederations Cup finish courtesy of three magnificent saves in the penalty shootout with Uruguay, Gigi Buffon took his family to Sardinia for a well-earned week’s break on the Mediterranean island.
But even when soaking up the sun at the exclusive Verdura Golf & Spa resort, Gigi’s thoughts are never too far away from the black and white stripes of his beloved Juventus.
So imagine the delight when youngsters using the resort’s facilities for Juventus Summer Training Session – a brand new activity promoted by Juventus Soccer Schools – had the opportunity to meet the Bianconeri and Azzurri number one in person.
And Gigi was only too happy to oblige, greeting all the youngsters individually before handing out some vital advice on what it takes to become a top professional.
Juventus Summer Training Session activities will be running throughout the entire summer. For further information, please click here
