Buffon explains decision to rejoin Juventus from PSG

Gianluigi Buffon says it was a "natural" decision for him to return to Juventus after just one full season at Paris Saint-Germain, due to the fact he was unable to cut the "umbilical cord" following his Allianz Stadium exit in the summer of 2018.

At the age of 40, Buffon called time on a 17-year spell with Juve and moved to Parc des Princes on a free transfer, putting pen to paper on a one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

Buffon racked up 25 appearances across all competitions for the Ligue 1 champions in total, and helped them retain their domestic crown, but he was lured back to Juve at the end of last season.
