Buffon: 'A different feeling'

Juventus captain Gigi Buffon reveals this Scudetto “has a different feeling to last year’s, but that doesn’t mean it is an inferior feeling.”

The Bianconeri beat Palermo 1-0 this afternoon to secure their second consecutive Serie A title and will today travel round the city on an open-top bus.

“I am very happy, because this has a different feeling to last year’s, but that doesn’t mean it is an inferior feeling,” Buffon told Mediaset Premium.

“In all of these weeks we put one brick at a time to secure our victories, appreciating this Scudetto bit by bit.

“The difference from last year is that we had nothing to lose, whereas this time we were forced to win otherwise it would’ve been treated like a failure.

“There was a lot of responsibility on our shoulders, as it isn’t easy to win again in that situation.”

Juventus and their fans are all waving signs with ‘31’ as they continue to include the two Scudetti stripped in the Calciopoli scandal.

“In 12 years at Juventus I finished first on seven occasions, including Serie B, so winning helps you to win.

“Antonio Conte? I don’t think there are any doubts over his future, but it’s only normal to discuss things with the club at the end of each season.”
