Juventus fans around the world knew it already, but Gigi Buffon was honored on Tuesday night in London as "The Best" Goalkeeper of 2017 at the FIFA Football Awards as well as being named to the FIFPro "World XI."
It's an award that today Buffon talked about in an exclusive interview with the Sky Sports microphones.
"I was really happy and proud to receive the recognition that was well-deserved for what was done last year," said Buffon. "I felt a mix of emotions: the greatest joy lies in the awareness that this could not have been achieved without such an important club and strong teammates. Sharing the pain and joy of the game is undoubtedly the most beautiful aspect of team sports."
