The former national team goalkeeper had recommended Maignan to the bianconeri

Gianluigi Buffon, former goalkeeper of Juventus and the Italian national team, spoke at the Trento Sports Festival, organized by ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport,’ and made a revelation about Milan’s current goalkeeper Mike Maignan, as well as the best goalkeeper of last season and an indispensable piece for Stefano Pioli.

“When I came back from Paris to Juve they asked me about goalkeepers. I said about Maignan from Lille, but no one was considering him. I wondered why. When Milan took him I sent a message to Maldini, saying that few believed in him but that they had taken a great goalkeeper. And in fact that’s what happened,” revealed the Parma player.
