'Prandelli doing an excellent job'

Gianluigi Buffon has claimed that Cesare Prandelli is doing an 'excellent job' at the Italian National Team.

The Azzurri reached the final of Euro 2012 last summer, and currently sit top of their World Cup qualifying group.

And the goalkeeper has insisted that the former Fiorentina Coach is doing well in the job, whilst also commenting on his senior status in the squad.

“Thanks to the excellent job Cesare Prandelli is doing, I think we’ve found a balance between defensive solidity and an attacking approach that allows our great forwards to express themselves better,” he told a Press conference.

“That time stops for no man. I made my debut when I was 17 and now I’m 35. I can’t stop the clock from ticking, but I’m very much at peace with myself and I’m not worried about it.

“The future belongs to the youngsters and I’m just trying to pass on the experience I’ve acquired over the years.”
