Buffon: 'I'm angry' at Danish draw

Gigi Buffon made his comeback for Juventus, but was “angry for the result and the way we conceded” in the shock draw with Nordsjaelland.

The Danish minnows had lost all their games in the Champions League so far without scoring a goal, but took the lead in tonight’s 1-1 stalemate.

“I am angry for the result and the way we conceded the goal,” snapped the ‘keeper who has shaken off a thigh problem.

“We conceded a very avoidable free kick on the edge of the box and that was frankly the only way they could possibly score against us. The free kick was perfect and I couldn’t do anything about it.

“The first half was balanced, but after the break there was only one team on the field. Never more than tonight was the result down to a single incident.”

Juventus have now drawn all three Group E games and risk a first round exit from the Champions League.

“There are no easy games in the Champions League and Nordsjaelland played on a par with Chelsea for almost 75 minutes,” continued Buffon.

“Now we have to do everything possible to win the next few games.”
