We have been through the purgatory of Serie B, to qualifying for Champions League and embarrassingly leaving the competition, to two seventh place finishes, to TWO CONSECUTIVE SCUDETTI! This, is what you get, for staying loyal to your club. Me, you, and everyone else that supported this great club during its worse times, know what exactly this Scudetto means. Not 29, not 31 …. its not about numbers anymore because either way - we have 11+ more Scudetti than them, and the possibility of them catching is not even there … it is in fact the first Scudetto that Gianluigi Buffon won as a Captain of this club.
The man who said NO to many European Top Clubs right after he had won the World Cup 2006, right after he had been relegated to Serie B.From World Champion to Serie B…. If you tell someone that story today, they’ll laugh at you…
Gigio, remains one of the main reasons that I as a fan, have always supported this club even through its worst periods. His personality which is unique and his bravery in his statements together with the outstanding talent that made him the best goalkeeper of the history, are rarely seen in sportsmen nowadays.
Without a champion like him, we wouldn’t be here where we already are, it is, as simple, as that!
I have loved, cheered and cried together with Buffon, the fans and the players, and will continue doing so because Juventus is the only thing that completes me. No matter how bad you are, in my eyes, you’re always the ideal lady of my life.
