Buffon: Run had to end

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon believes that the club's 3-1 loss to Inter at the weekend will not damage their confidence.

The Nerazzurri defeated Antonio Conte's side to end their 49-match unbeaten run, but the 34-year-old shot-stopper is of the opinion that the Bianconeri can grow as a team because of the result.

“I do not think losing means we will have lost our confidence,” he told La Stampa. “We have been growing as a team for over a year, and sooner or later the run had to come to an end.

“The win will of course give Inter more self-belief, but I don't think it affects us too much. For the first quarter of the game we played well, looking for the second goal.

“But we sat back a bit too much and defended with fear. I don't like losing, but my discomfort towards the result is only mild.”
