You cannot wage a war alone and Buffon tries to give others enthusiasm, if someone could give it, Buffon would welcome it, otherwise he will stop playing peacefully.
It was a test for Buffon
The Bianconeri made a 176-cap man for Italy in the name of the most expensive goalkeeper in world football when they beat Parma in 2001. Gianluigi spent the next 17 years at Turin before returning to familiar surroundings in 2019 after a one-season stay with the Ligue 1 PSG giants. In total, he played 684 matches for Juventus, earning them 10 Serie A titles, four Coppa Italia triumphs and three Champions League finals. It’s time to leave, having won back Wojciech Szczesny’s reinforcements since returning to Allianz Stadium, and Buffon is proud of everything it has achieved. Gianluigi added that it was a very good second experience at Juventus. In the end, I wanted to test myself as a man. Taking even at 41 to start as a second choice is a complete demonstration of his respect for Juve. The Italian has always been supportive. He was asked about it and the Italian did it because he loves Juve and all his teammates. It was an exam to show what he can give as a person. From time to time, you must create stimuli yourself.
