When it comes to goalkeeping, one of the key factors is the positioning of the two centre-backs.
With the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Kolo Toure, and Gianlui Buffon being among the most experienced players in the world, there are few who have not benefited from playing in that position.
However, it has been the positioning that has made the difference for the Italian’s career.
“I’ve played in the middle of the field for a long time, I know how to defend in the centre of the pitch, I’ve never had to defend outside the box,” Buffon said.
“And when you play there, you don’t even have to think about it, you can do it. “
The ball goes in, you score. “
And when you play there, you don’t even have to think about it, you can do it.
The ball goes in, you score.
I’m so happy, I’m really happy, that’s the only thing I can say.”
Buffon’s career goalkeeping position: left-back (2007-present) He has been linked with several clubs around Europe, but he has stayed with Inter for many years.
“He’s a really good goalkeeper, a very important player, one who can play in front of the defence and protect the back four,” Juventus coach Antonio Conte said.
The key position has helped Buffon maintain his place as one of Europe’s most-experienced goalkeepers.
“You know what I mean?
He’s a very good goalkeeper.
You know the difference between the two.
You have to be able to keep the ball, defend, and play a good football game.
And that’s exactly what I can do,” Buffant said.
Buffon has scored over 150 goals for Juventus in his career.
In the 2007-08 season, he became the first player in the club’s history to score over 150 league goals.
He made his Serie A debut in 2008, but did not play in the following season.
In 2009, Buffon played just 10 games for Inter and scored one goal.
His most memorable game came in the Champions League quarter-final against AC Milan.
After the game, Buffant told reporters that his team deserved a win.
“We won a penalty.
That was a penalty, a wonderful penalty.
I’ve scored a penalty against AC and I have a penalty to do against Juventus,” Buffan said.
He continued his goalscoring exploits in the 2010-11 season, scoring the decisive goal in the final against AC.
He scored his second goal in three Champions League games, the decisive one against Milan.
“If you compare him to my last goals, I don’t think there’s any difference.
I think he’s one of my best players, I think his work ethic is really good,” Conte told Italian radio station Radio Amore.
When I see him, I can’t help but be happy.”
