Prandelli: Buffon is still Italy’s number one
“Buffon, with me in charge of the side, has always been and will continue to be the number one,” Prandelli explained the situation in a recent interview with Sky Sport Italia
“However, at the same time, he has to keep a look out over his shoulder because Lazio’s Federico Marchetti and Salvatore Sirgu of Paris Saint-Germain are growing a lot.
“The first has re-found his consistency and security, while the second is maturing thanks to some important experiences in Paris.”
The now 35-year-old Buffon is just two games shy of tying Fabio Cannavaro’s 136 game-record for the national side.
