Buffon wants 2006 Scudetto back

Gigi Buffon notes it would be “very satisfying” to have the 2006 Scudetto returned to Juventus. “The pitch gave its verdict.”

The title was stripped from the Bianconeri and handed to Inter in the Calciopoli trial, but new evidence could see it put back into question.

“Many years have passed and we marked that deserved victory with a party,” said Buffon at the unveiling of the new Juve strip.

“Now the situation is evolving. It would be very satisfying to find that Scudetto again, the one we won on the field.”

A decision is expected by the FIGC on July 18 after new evidence of Inter phone calls to refereeing designators emerged. It was much the same behaviour that prompted Luciano Moggi's lifetime ban.

“I think the pitch gave its verdict,” continued Buffon today.

“Some situations emerged where people tried to make it seem as if Juventus only won not because we were better, but because we had certain directors.

“That is just plain wrong, especially as we are talking about a side that could count on great champions.”
