The Brazilian said: “Buffon has the respect of everyone for the job he has made this year, he has won the World Cup and is doing very well now also with Juventus.
“But he doesn’t bother me, I know I have the qualities in order to help Inter. (Coach) Roberto Mancini has great confidence in my worth and showed this as soon as I arrived here, making me first-choice goalkeeper.
“I must try to do well until the end of the season and hope to win the Scudetto.
“If I can continue like this, I will be able to make the club forget about looking for another goalkeeper.”
