Buffon: "Nobody promised me the number one shirt"

Buffon:

Buffon's Juventus career came to an end when his contract expired in June, and the Bianconeri wanted to move on with Wojciech Szczesny and Mattia Perin as the club's new goalkeeping duo.

PSG are also yet to win the tournament despite huge investment in their squad - including a world-record deal for Neymar - and domestic dominance, but Buffon is not exclusively focusing on European titles.

Paris Saint-Germain would understandably be still reeling as they were taken to town by European rivals and competitive money splurgers Barcelona and Real Madrid in back-to-back Champions League campaigns, and ultimately putting their credentials in the shade for the time being.

"But at the beginning of a season, you can't focus on a goal, only mad people do that and we're not mad here".

Buffon, who played a record 176 times for Italy, has an option to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes for a further season.

"PSG intrigued me a lot because of the talent in the team, but they were not enough to make the leap".

New manager Thomas Tuchel now has the likes of Buffon, as well as Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar at his disposal in Paris, and Buffon was philosophical about the Brazilian superstar's recent World Cup exit at the hands of semifinalists Belgium.

"This new adventure can help me progress as much as a person as it will a player", he intimated. "In Turin, I was in a considerable comfort zone".

"I've always looked for challenges", he admitted.

"Nobody promised me the number one shirt".

"I played only a year with him but I have affection for him", he said.
