Buffon: 'Playing out from the back...'

Gianluigi Buffon joked with the reports claiming he was fundamental when Juventus are ‘playing out from the back’.

The World Cup winner was praised as one of the best players on the pitch when Juventus beat Napoli 2-1 on Wednesday.

The Italian sports pages claimed he was fundamental at the back and provided the security the team have lacked with Wojciech Szczesny in recent games.

But Buffon joked with the reports claiming he contributed positively to the Bianconeri ‘playing out from the back’ and posted a picture of himself booting the ball forward.

“Playing out from the back, Buffon edition,” he wrote.
