Gianluigi Buffon “would be crazy” to talk about Juventus winning the Scudetto ahead of their trip to Roma.
The Bianconeri are top of the table and the only side still unbeaten in Serie A.
“We need a great deal of calm here,” the goalkeeper told Tuttosport. “There are too many games to go, including the entire second half of the season.
“The road is too long and I really don’t want to take our fans for a ride. If I said that S word, then I’d be crazy. I’m not just refusing to say it out of false modesty.
“Don’t forget in December last year we were in second place, then bad luck ran us down. So many injuries, at least six simultaneously, saw our season precipitate.
“After all, if we were to lose one or two important players, then we’d have to see if the team could make do without them,” continued Buffon.
“In those difficult moments, if they come, we can tell how good this squad really is.”
