Ex Italy goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon has come out to say that he is shocked by Federico Chiesa’s meteoric rise to prominence. He recently revealed that the Italian winger definitely has something special after his Euro performance.
According to him, when Chiesa arrived at Juventus, he never saw him as an exceptional talent, but his dazzling skills and pace at the European Championship proved him wrong.
Buffon added that Federico doing all he did at a top tournament that his country won means he has the right mentality.
His words, “When he arrived at Juve I didn’t think he was so good. I am honest. In the European Championship he was unbelievable, in the final match with England, it was impossible to stop him.”
“After a season at Juve with Federico it is no longer a surprise for me, but it was not obvious that he would be able to play at such a high level in a tournament like the European Championship.”
“If you do those things at such a high level, then it means that you are really special.”
On a possible retirement, “Now I continue because I have a dream,”
“But it will have to be supported by the results. As soon as I notice a sign of decline, a minute later I will stop.”
“Also because I am perfectly happy at home with my wife and children, with friends. Quitting will never be a problem.”
