Buffon : Matuidi advised me to join PSG


Gianluigi Buffon was officially unveiled by Paris Saint Germain today and the legendary goalkeeper said that former PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi convinced him to join the French champions.

“Blaise is a special person and the empathy between us is very strong,” Buffon said.

“He advised me that PSG need a player like you and you’ll feel very good in their dressing room. It’s something I listened to.”

“I chose to come here because I felt I could still give something important.”

“I want to prove that I’m still a great goalkeeper and I’ll do that. I’d also played for the national team until last year, so I showed I was competitive.

“I’ll keep playing for as long as I feel good and show I’m among the best. As soon as these stop happening, I’ll be the first to step aside.

“I love challenges, I want to test myself. My first training session was difficult, since so many of the lads here speak a different language, but this nonetheless makes me happy.

“In a month or two, I’ll be a stronger person. I’ll have new friends and be accustomed to a new culture. I’ll be a better person and footballer.
