Elkann on Tevez & Buffon heroics

Chairman of the Exor group that owns Juventus John Elkann has praised the signing of Carlos Tevez and Gianluigi Buffon's performances for Italy.

The Argentine forward arrived from Manchester City last week to much fanfare, and the Bianconeri chief has claimed that it is a great purchase by the club.

“We have a really strong team already,” he told reporters. “The collective is very important for us.

“Tevez is a great buy. Juventus have always had strong No.10s throughout its history.”

Elkann then commented on the club's goalkeeper and his heroics in the Confederations Cup third-place play-off.

“Buffon has once again proven to be a great champion.

“We are very proud of our captain's performances in Brazil.”
