Gianluigi Buffon will be in black and white until 2012
Juventus Football Club has extended Gianluigi Buffon's contract until 30 June, 2012. The world cup champion goalkeeper was welcomed this afternoon at Juventus headquarters by the CEO Jean-Claude Blanc and signed the contract that binds him to the club until that date.
The first reaction comes from the CEO Jean-Claude Blanc who expressed his satisfaction for the agreement: “Today we have achieved another important result, as keeping Gianluigi Buffon at Juventus was one of the key points of our plans for the coming years. The fact that the world cup champion goalkeeper has shown his confidence in our sports project and shares our ambitions is a matter of great pride. Gianluigi appreciates our innovative and multi-faceted proposal that in addition to putting him at the centre of an important football project also envisages the enhancement of his image”. Blanc added that “for Juventus this confirms the seriousness with which we are building a competitive team for the next season”.
The Chairman Cobolli Gigli underlined the importance of this agreement for the company and all its fans: “We are very satisfied with this agreement as it consolidates the relationship of trust with a great champion: a man who shares our choices and values, who in recent years has always demonstrated commitment and professionalism and who has always honoured the club with superb performances. This agreement comes just a few days before the end of the championship and I am certain it will be welcomed enthusiastically by all Juventus supporters”.
Buffon's satisfaction mirrors that of the Juventus management: “An important day for me, because I have written a new page in my career and life. A choice in line with what I decided last year that confirms my attachment to this team, to this company and to Juventus fans who have never failed to show their affection for me. The project that I have seen is convincing because the company has set sports goals in which I believe and because it creates the conditions for an increasingly stimulating relationship”.
