Juventus captain Del Piero: We all hoped Buffon would stay

He said: “We all hoped he would make that decision, so of course we’re extremely happy. Buffon’s value to the side is not just as a sportsman, but also as a person.

“Now I hope that other teammates like David Trezeguet and Mauro Camoranesi can stay, but it is the club that must make the decisions. At most all I can do is give my advice, if I am asked.”
