The goalkeeper confesses to France Football: “I talked about it with my children and they told me to go to Paris. Politically correct is boring.”
In a long interview with France Football, Gianluigi Buffon told an anecdote about his past: “In 2018 I had decided to stop playing football. Then came the call from Paris Saint-Germain. I talked about it first of all with my children. , because although football takes me a long time to be with them, I always see them happy that I play. And in fact, without any hesitation, they said to me: ‘Go dad, it’s too good. You will play in an incredible team’. made it clear that it is important for them to have me as a point of reference and that they are happy to have a father like that “. And in Paris, Buffon took some great personal satisfaction: “I had certificates of esteem and affection that at times were also undeserved, in my opinion, especially on the street. This made me uncomfortable, but it was exciting”.
Among the many topics touched on in the interview, Buffon also spoke of the two things he hates most in the world of football: “Clichés and politically correct, even if I use it too. I do it so as not to disrespect others. It happens, like, when I’m asked for an opinion on other players: you always have to say the same things to not be rude. This thing bores me. ” Inevitable then, for the French journalists, not to ask Buffon a question about the 2006 World Cup final in Berlin: “France were very strong, perhaps stronger than us, just look at the path they had made. Only a team with our spirit. could have prevailed. ” And on Zidane’s header in Materazzi, he added: “I would have expected everything in that game, except that episode. When I saw it I shouted to the assistant referee in a very spontaneous way. For us that episode is It was a fortune, given the way the match was taking. Zizou was in incredible shape and could have decided it. ”
