Gianluigi Buffon has conceded that winning the Champions League is ‘the dream’ of everyone at Juventus this season.
The Bianconeri kick their European campaign off tomorrow night away to Copenhagen, and the goalkeeper has insisted that the entire squad will endeavour to get off to a winning start.
“I am curious to see if we are able to continue to improve from last year,” he told a Press conference.
“Winning the Champions League is a dream that I share with all the members of the Juventus – the playing staff, management and fans.
“The leadership strengthened the team over the summer, but now it’s up to us players to prove that we’re better on the pitch.”
Buffon then commented on a reunion with former teammate Olof Mellberg.
“He is a nice guy who I have fond memories of. He is a true professional and I’m sure he’s very important to this team.”
