Buffon Salutes Juve Scudetto Sports pundit

Juventus veteran Gianluigi Buffon says his side performed when it mattered on their way to the 2012-13 Serie A title.

The Old Lady secured the Scudetto thanks to their 1-0 triumph over Palermo on Sunday, with Arturo Vidal’s 59th minute penalty deciding the contest.

“It’s a huge weight off our shoulders, a responsibility we’ve had from the start of the season,” Buffon said.

“When you’re favourites and expected to win, it’s only yours to lose. We did well.

“I’ve really enjoyed this particular Scudetto triumph, we’ve shown our group spirit right from the first match.

“We never put a foot wrong when it counted and in recent matches, we took the decisive steps by winning difficult games that were anything but guaranteed victories.”
