Ligue 1: Gianluigi Buffon ready to fight for PSG place

Ligue 1: Gianluigi Buffon ready to fight for PSG place”

Paris: Gianluigi Buffon, Paris Saint-Germain's veteran goalkeeper, said on Monday he was not a guaranteed starter as he embarks on a new challenge following his move from Juventus. I am going to bring all my energy, all my experience and all of my thirst to win to help my new club achieve all the great objectives it has set out for the future.

The nine-time Serie A victor had been linked with taking up an off-field role at Juve but wanted to keep on playing and signed a one-year-deal in Paris.

He would become the first signing under the new PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel, who replaced now-Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

"I'd have liked him to end his career at Juventus, but that's a personal thing".

Buffon spoke to the media as part of a press conference and also had the mandatory pitchside photos with chairman and CEO Nasser Al Khelaifi, as well as his family.

Many expected the 40-year-old to retire from football this summer, however it's clear there are still ambitions deep within the Italian icon, although he will miss PSG's first three Champions League matches through suspension. "I think it's not PSG's obsession, but it's clearly a very interesting title to get", added Buffon.

The PSG ace is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world but failed to inspire his country in Russian Federation this summer.

"I've talked to Buffon so many times over the last 3-4 months", Lippi told Radio Anch'io Sport (via Football Italia).

Buffon has never played for a club outside Italy. Over two decades later and the 12-time Serie A goalkeeper of the year is now a PSG player.
