Andujar hails Buffon as best ever

Catania’s Mariano Andujar has labelled Juventus’ Gigi Buffon as the greatest goalkeeper of all time.

The Argentine will come face to face with the Italian at the weekend when the two teams meet in Serie A.

“I’m happy to be taking on Buffon, he is a legend,” the custodian told Itasportpress in an interview. “He’s the best in history, at least in my opinion.

“Why has he never won the Golden Ball? Because we are goalkeepers. Then there is Lionel Messi who is ahead of everybody – there is no room for anyone else.”

Juventus will go into the Sicilian clash on an unbeaten Serie A run which now stretches to 47 matches.

“Well, that run has to end some day,” the South American continued. “Let’s hope that happens on Sunday…”
