The words of Gigi Buffon

Gigi Buffon spoke during the presentation of the partnership between Parma and Puma, the new technical sponsor of the Crusaders for the next five years.

“The experience of the playoffs I have never lived it, so the fact that at 45 years old I have to face it as a neophyte is something that makes me smile and I like it very much. We are getting there well, because in the last two months our path is convincing and growing,” he stressed. “But it is clear that the other teams with whom we will compete for the last spot to go to A are teams equipped at least as well as we are to be able to hope for it. And like all competitions where there is great balance, the detail will make the difference.”

He is echoed by Valentin Mihaila, who was also present at the event: “We are thinking about winning, we want to go a little higher in the standings and get fourth. And then the playoffs will be played, where anything can happen and we want to win. For me it has been a difficult season, I started well and then a series of injuries. Now I am fine, I am training with the team, I have played many games, but I want to play more to help the team. There is a different air right now, we are more of a group than at the beginning of the season when many young people were still not used to this league. Now we are a strong team that can win.”
