Gigi Buffon “is still the best in the world,” insisted the Juventus goalkeeper’s agent.
The shot-stopper has received an unusual amount of criticism this year, as some say his reactions have slowed considerably.
“Buffon is still the best in the world and one mistake cannot ruin his quality,” Silvano Martina told Radio Crc.
“Pepe Reina is an important goalkeeper who ensured Napoli do not miss Morgan De Sanctis, but I think that with all due respect Buffon is superior to everyone.”
They will have the chance to face off on Sunday in their Serie A Scudetto battle.
“Juventus and Napoli are two great clubs and I’m sure we will be given a spectacle, even if it’s a shame this match comes after European efforts.
“Napoli are probably the only Italian club who can invest right now and Rafa Benitez is a great Coach.”
