Gianluigi Buffon published a message dedicated to all of his teammates.

“No record comes down to a single man and you can’t be number one outside of the group. So I’d like to thank...

  • Neto, for the serenity he gives our whole team every time he is on the pitch.
  • Rubinho, silent and patient leader.
  • Chiello, because he never gives up till the end.
  • Caceres, for showing enthusiasm even in the hardest moments.
  • Alex Sandro, because seeing him dribble a defender is always a pleasure.
  • Barzagli: he must be cloned immediately.
  • Bonucci, for his charisma, holding his head high and always working in the team’s service.
  • Rugani, because being able to listen is a rare quality.
  • Stephan, who represents the legs and lungs of this Juve.
  • Evra. If we didn’t have him, we ought to buy him.
  • Khedira, always the right man in the right place.
  • Marchisio the only player I know whose colour is black/white.  
  • Pogba, because he doesn’t live football, he invents it.
  • Hernanes, because every team needs its prophet.
  • Lemina, who is simply a Juve type of man.
  • Padoin, who does excellently wherever he’s placed.
  • Asamoah, whose love of football is stronger than any injury.
  • Sturaro, “he fights, falls, gets back up and always wins”.
  • Pereyra, because creativity is the salt of this sport.
  • Zaza, who was born to score from any position.
  • Morata, we always need him.
  • Cuadrado, because every time he starts running, it’s like he is saying ‘catch me if you can!’
  • Mandzukic, the first to attack, and the first to defend.
  • Dybala: if the shirt number 21 was given to him after being worn by [Lilian] Thuram, [Zinedine] Zidane and [Andrea] Pirlo, then there’s got to be a reason.
  • And finally our Coach, a winner in the temple of winners!”
