Torino goalkeeper Sirigu: I'm proud Buffon at PSG

Torino goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu says Gigi Buffon is enjoying his time at PSG.

The pair are in regular contact, with Sirigu a former PSG player.

“Leisure time is relative, work doesn’t begin and end with daily training sessions,” Sirigu said.

“Take Buffon, his career isn’t just about technical and mental qualities. I’ve never seen Gigi fat, for example. Details don’t stop with training.

“Buffon at PSG? We talk, we’re friends. I’m proud that a man like him represents Italian football abroad. I’ve listened to some of his interviews in French, he’s getting along really well.

“It’s a good experience [playing abroad]. There’s teasing of course, we all carry clichés with us, whether we’re Italian or French.

“Then you discover the differences, the nuances. Living in Paris helped me understand France, the difference between a Breton and someone who was born in the south.”
