Buffon: 'I'm proud of myself'

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed it was a difficult season but was 'happy' to have reached his own goal. ‘I had a target of reaching 10 Scudetti, since two of them were stolen’.

The Bianconeri goalkeeper returned from a stint at Paris Saint-Germain to set a record of appearances in Serie A and win his 10th title with the Old Lady.

“I’m happy. It was important for me to close the drawers, otherwise something would have remained unfinished,” Buffon told Il Corriere dello Sport. “I had a target of reaching 10 Scudetti, since two of them were stolen.

“I did it. Even the record of appearances pleases me. But it hasn’t been an easy year. I have always adapted, I’m altruistic by nature.

“But I had to deal with what I represented, and I still think I represent.”

Buffon has been Wojciech Szczesny’s wingman during his return to the Allianz Stadium.

“I put myself to the test. I’m proud of myself, because I passed. I always disliked the arrogant and this was a way to test me, to be able to say I’m not.”
