Gigi Buffon Wants Celtic in the Champions League for the “Electric Atmosphere”

Gigi Buffon Wants Celtic in the Champions League for the “Electric Atmosphere”

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon wants to be drawn in the same Champions League group as Celtic this week – so he can experience the “electric atmosphere” of Parkhead again.

The Italy international has visited Celtic’s stomping ground twice during his glittering career, first in 2001 and then again in 2013.

However, it appears the veteran shot-stopper wants another taste before he hangs up his gloves at the end of this season.

Speaking via the Daily Record, Buffon mentioned Celtic Park alongside the Camp Nou, Old Trafford and the Bernabeu.

He said, “Playing in the Champions League allows you to experience some of the most exciting stadiums in Europe and when you are younger you take that for granted as there are many more opportunities ahead of you.

“But as you get old you realise there are things you perhaps won’t experience again.”

 

The 39-year-old added, “I want to test myself at the Bernabeu and Camp Nou again, I want to play another special evening game at Old Trafford. I want to experience the electric atmosphere of Celtic Park once more.

What do you reckon, Celtic fans, would you like to draw Juve tomorrow?
