Buffon: My career with Juventus has been a very professional one and the last two seasons have been a test

The legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has expressed his complete satisfaction with his distinguished experience with Juventus during his career, which is preparing for his last confrontation with Juventus against the Bologna team on Sunday, in the 38th and last round of the current season 2020-2021 in the Italian League.

Buffon, 43, had announced earlier that this season would be his last in the Juventus team.

Buffon spoke to the Italian "Sky Sports", saying: "I think that what I presented with Juventus was the highest degree of professionalism and seriousness. I was a professional, serious and reliable person."

The Juventus goalkeeper added: "In the last two seasons after my return to the team, my role as a player was not essential, it was not easy to be able to adapt to it, especially by someone like me, I think that the past two years have been a test to measure myself as a person, and I am happy because I think I overcame them brilliantly. "

"It's not easy to be able to understand when is the right time to step back and sit behind the scenes, and leave the lights on to others," he continued, "at 43 years old, I feel like a man and he should behave this way, not like a boy."

Buffon led the Old Lady's team to win the Italian Cup for the 14th time in the club's history, after beating his counterpart Atalanta 2-1, last Wednesday evening.

Juventus are seeking to win over Bologna in their last league confrontations, with Milan or Napoli stumbling to participate in the European Champions League next season.
