Buffon: Juventus can win trophies

He said: “I have this great feeling that the group has the potential to win more. I have the good fortune to be with some special teammates and imagined the taste of the next Scudetto.

“It’s more or less an advertising slogan – some things are just priceless. It was a delicious feeling.

“We are proud that we dominated Serie B. It was an inevitable purgatory, as it was the only way to make Juve likeable again in the eyes of the public. Now I am seeing a strong and competitive squad being forged.”

He added: “If I had wanted to go, then I would have. It’s true there was a contract, but what sense would there have been in keeping an unhappy Buffon?”
