The publication FOOTBALL-ITALIA publishes a statement by the French national team and the young leader of PSG, Kylian Mbappe, where he talks about his former teammate, the legendary Gianluigi Buffon. “I miss Buffon,” – Mbappe says.

According to Mbappe, Buffon has always been an exemplary figure for him, and when he got a chance to play with him in one team, he was proud of it. So, when he heard that the Italian was returning to the Turin club, he was disappointed.

“I was very happy to hear that Buffon had moved to PSG. When I first met him on the pitch, I was taking my first steps in the world of football, and I immediately felt that he was a very good person.

Buffon came up to me, turned to me, kissed me, and told me he saw a great player in me. Such words from a legendary player like that really meant a lot. Then we spent one season in Paris. I loved listening to his advice. He is a fun and balanced person. Gianluigi Buffon is a very important figure for me. When I found out at the end of the season that he was leaving, I was heartbroken.

I will always remember him. To tell you the truth, I miss Buffon, “said Kylian Mbappe.

Recall that the Italian goalkeeper left Juventus after 17 years of activity in 2018 and spent the 2018-19 season in PSG. He then returned to the “Old Lady.”
