Mbappe: 'I miss Buffon'

Kylian Mbappe has confessed to missing Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon at Paris Saint-Germain. “Seeing him leave hit me.”

Buffon and Mbappe were PSG teammates during the 2018-19 campaign, winning the Ligue 1 title together.

However, the 41-year-old returned to Juve last summer and the forward admits he was ‘very important to me’.

“I’ve always loved listening to elders,” he told L’Equipe. “Buffon was also very important to me.

“Seeing [Lassana Diarra] leave hit me and seeing Buffon leave had the same effect.”
