Buffon: Juventus will do well in Champions League next term
Gianluigi Buffon is confident that Juventus will do well in the Champions League next season after they failed to impress this term.
The Serie A champions had to settle for third spot in their group behind Real Madrid and Galatasaray as they crashed out before the knockout rounds and Buffon has admitted that they have not been good enough in Europe this campaign.
However, the experienced goalkeeper has little doubt that head coach Antonio Conte can guide them to success in 2014-15.
"We know the best way to approach games with all of the Italian sides," the 35-year-old told the official Bianconeri website.
"Maybe in Europe something different is required, but we have a coach who’s so well prepared that next year he’ll be able to find the solution."
The Italy international then went on to discuss Juventus' short-term ambitions and stressed that the Serie A title is their main objective.
"Our next objective is winning the Scudetto, the third in a row. Almost 80 years have passed since we last did that."
