Gianluigi Buffon quotes

A hug to those who believe that, also and especially in sport, it is necessary to be people of good will. Now, tomorrow, always and forever #FinoAllaFine!!!feedback

The dead are dead and they do not disturb anybody. They are to be left in peace and be respected, even if they are the fiercest of enemies or rivals one can have. Because the dead have wives, children, grandchildren and to cause them further atrocious sufferance, in addition to what they have already been through, is inhumane.feedback

In a beautiful day after our victory [over Monaco], my thoughts go to our cousins of Toro and their fans and those glorious players who made a whole nation and the Granata people proud. Honour to the great champions of Grande Torino and pardon to those who taint themselves with unjustifiable acts, such as deriding or disrespecting you, even today, 70 years on.feedback

Let's not settle for being mediocre and vile just to make up for received impoliteness. Fans of Juve, I am sending this message to you because I know that I have the right to do this after all that we have shared together. Fans of Juve, make me truly proud of you because if we truly think and believe that the Juve style is represented and indicated by the worthy and absolute values that characterise us, it is inconceivable to desecrate and violate the sensitivity of those who have suffered and keep on suffering: let's not befoul affection, feelings and memories.feedback

In every game I want to show that I deserve to play at this level despite my age. I work hard every day for this objective. The day I quit, I want people to be sad about it. I don't know if I am achieving it or not, but playing in a team like this undoubtedly helps. The important thing is to be ready when the team needs me. As long as I can do that, I consider myself satisfied and happy. It [winning the Ballon d'Or] is not something I think about, nor do I miss having it. I spend so much energy to keep myself in shape and perform well in these games, to be of use to my team-mates.feedback

We said after the Barcelona tie that we want to improve day by day. We are close to our objective and it would be naive not to work as hard as possible now.feedback

We played a great game, exactly the game that we needed to survive with a clean sheet at Monaco because they have a great attack. If you don't have this solidity, but also the quality when attacking, it would all be more complicated.feedback

If you have the will to win, the age on your identity card doesn't really mean anything. Beyond winning or losing it, I love playing in the Champions League. It brings the best out of me. It might be difficult to believe but, for me, playing in a Champions League final would give me as much pleasure as ever. I was born to play such games.feedback

Aside from the result, the belief and character of our approach was excellent and it's a good confidence booster to qualify comfortably against what remains probably the best team in the world. I did think we had a good chance of qualification after the 3-0 first leg result, but I honestly didn't believe we would come to Camp Nou and keep a clean sheet. When you face a side like this, with their attacking options, you think that one or two goals are always going to be scored. The fact we stopped Barcelona scoring over 180 minutes of football means we really are solid.feedback

If we build on that even more, and continue to evolve, then we can become a truly great team.feedback

Our growth process started a few years ago and needs to continue. It certainly can't just stop or plateau after this victory. It's down to us now, our destiny is in our own hands for whether we can improve. When it comes to the trophy, fate has a hand in that, too.feedback

Aside from our determination, which is traditionally part of the Juventus identity, we are becoming more 'European' by pressing, proving dangerous in attack and controlling the game more than we did in previous years.feedback

Paulo Dybala has grown dramatically over the last two years. When I talk to directors or friends in football, I've been saying for a while that he is good enough to be in the top five players in the world and he wouldn't be out of place in the top three. Having said that, he needs to prove it every time and with regularity, to show he is worthy of our expectations of him.feedback

That makes me cautiously optimistic, even if they are stronger on paper. The distance to them has narrowed. I don't know how many teams play with three out-and-out strikers like Barcelona. I don't want to disrespect the other Barcelona players, but when you have players like Neymar, Messi and Suárez up front it's difficult not to focus on their attack.feedback

I think we know that in these two games we are meeting the strongest team we could face. But it is also true that it is the Champions League and it will be nice to measure ourselves against them. I have never seen the final in Berlin again, but I have clear memories of that night which give me reasons to be positive ahead of this match. They were much stronger than us, especially in the way they approached the game. Now we have two more years of experience at this level which allows us to play in such games with a different mentality.feedback

They help each other, they make assists for each other, they play together with a lot of joy and they work together for the team, so everything is very difficult for their opponents. They are unselfish players who have earned a huge amount of respect.feedback

They have devastating attacking power which any coach would love to have at his disposal.feedback

Albania is a country that has enjoyed massive growth in the last two years and they showed what they can do at the Euros.feedback

I have to think about that and see what I feel in my heart. There is a great respect and real fear for tomorrow's game. That is not just rhetoric.feedback

Serie A was financially doped, but can be the best again.feedback

Italian football was financially doped. By that I mean that we lived above our capabilities and we blew money which we originally could not afford. But in Italy the passion for football will never die. I believe in cycles. We are back on our way up and maybe in four or five years the Serie A will be the best league in Europe again.feedback

He has his own era. [Neuer is] the best one in the category 'modern 'keeper' for years.feedback

Regardless of the first-leg result and the fact we had a man advantage too, we always stayed focused because if you switch off for even a moment you're instantly made to pay. At the end of the second half, for example, Porto had three clear-cut goalscoring chances and that shows the level of the Champions League.feedback

We've made big strides, especially in terms of our self-belief. That was the target we set ourselves a few years ago, when we began our European journey. We wanted to be among the top eight and that's our level. If you're always in the mix with the best sides, sooner or later you end up winning the competition.feedback

The treble is difficult and challenging to talk about. Yes, we must think big, but we always need to have our feet planted firmly on the ground.feedback

Mbappe is an incredible talent and I think he seems like a good boy. That will help him a lot in his career, which I hope is very bright. If that is the case, he will not have such a strong need to go through against us - he will have many other opportunities in the future to win the Champions League.feedback

He was born in 1998, right? I had already been at the 1998 World Cup in France when he was born. This is the beauty of life, the beauty of living, being able to meet guys who were not even born by the time you had a big part of your career behind you. I thought about it recently, I was able to connect almost three generations. I played with those born in the 1950s and '60s and I will finish with those born after 2000. It is a huge length of time.feedback

It's very exciting to know you're playing against the future Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar. Maybe in 10 years, when I'm done, these will be the established champions and I will always have the memory of facing them at the dawn of their careers.feedback
