Buffon: Couldn't turn the Lady down...

Gianluigi Buffon claims his Juventus return ‘is confirmation that life is incredible’, while he ‘couldn’t turn down an invitation from a Lady.’

Buffon is back at Juve only a year after he left for Paris Saint-Germain, and the veteran goalkeeper expressed his delight at re-joining the Old Lady.

“Hi everyone, I wanted to greet you once again,” he said in a video.

“I’m happy to have returned home and have the opportunity again to reembrace you all and to be reembraced by all of you.

“Today I received the confirmation that life is incredible, and it’s always worth dreaming.”

He added on Instagram: “I’ve decided to come back.

“When family calls, the only possible answer is ‘I’m here’. It’s the beginning of a new stage of my long journey.

“I’m getting back to the place I’m proud to call ‘home’, and I’m doing it with unchanged spirit, endless love and absolute determination.

“This is a fresh start. Somehow different from the past, and yet filled with the same emotions and joy.

“I come back to Turin because I know I can play my part. I come back because you can't turn down an invitation from a Lady.

“I come back because this is my home!”
