Buffon chooses No.77 and confirms Chiellini captain, Szczesny starting keeper

Gianluigi Buffon has chosen No.77 shirt after his sensational return to Juventus.

‘I thank both Chiellini & Szczesny, who spoke to me in the last few days and offered me the number 1 shirt and the captain’s armband, What’s fair, however, is that the starting GK keeps the number 1 and that Giorgio, who is like a brother to me, stay as the Captain’, says Buffon.

‘What will my shirt be? I thought of the ’77’, which represents a bit of my story, and it was with that number in Parma, playing a sensational season, that I had the chance to come to Juventus.’
