CL: Buffon on Chelsea | SetantaJuventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is optimistic about his side’s chances of beating Chelsea in the Champions League.
Juve face Chelsea in Turin next week as they look to overturn a 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, and the Italy keeper feels they could go on and win the tournament if they get through that game.
“For the last 75 minutes in London, we showed that we could handle them and, at 1-0, you can turn it around if we score,” he told La Stampa.
“Also, Chelsea don’t seem to have the same physical fitness or mental belief they have had in other years.”
He added: “If we get through, we would only have five more games [to win it].”
However, Buffon knows that there are some strong teams left in the competition and believes Barcelona are the greatest threat.
“The best team in Europe is always Barcelona,” he said.
“Manchester United have three or four outstanding players, but the rest are not considered to be phenomenal – what makes them strong is how they play as a team.”
Scholes, Giggs, Carrick, Ronaldo, Rooney, Berbatov, Evra, Rio, Vidic etc etc. All in my opinion 'outstanding players'.
What's Buffon on about? We're not even playing Juventus so why is he talking crap?
