Buffon: ‘Very happy to be here’

First Team

At his official presentation, Paris Saint-Germain’s new goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon spoke to the media about his new club.

HIS FIRST WORDS
“I am very happy to be here with you. I am very excited by this new challenge. I can already feel a very special energy here. I don’t know if it’s just the atmosphere here, the magic of Paris, or if it’s the energy of the supporters and the club that really wanted me here. Thank you for everything.”

THE FIRST CONTACT WITH PARIS
“It was a huge surprise. I have to admit I already had other ideas for my future, but I always hoped something would come up for my future. I still feel deep inside that I have something more to give. And that’s what happened. Sometimes life can be unpredictable.”

HIS PLACE IN PARIS
“Obviously I’m 40 years old, but I am in good health and I’m mentally strong. Everyone will try to have an important role in the squad. I will try to show that I am still a good goalkeeper. I want to keep playing until my body can’t keep going. When that’s the case, I’ll stop. When I started at Juventus, I wanted to fit in and succeed. I have joined Paris with a child’s enthusiasm.”
