The former PSG goalkeeper hopes that the two goalkeepers will take turns in the Parisian cages.
For the debut of PSG in the Champions League, this Wednesday evening, against Bruges, Mauricio Pochettino decided to start Keylor Navas in the cages while Gianluigi Donnarumma had played during the last outing of the Parisian club, last weekend, in Ligue 1, against Clermont.
Before the meeting, Gianluigi Buffon, former PSG goalkeeper, spoke at the microphone of BeIn Sports on the competition between the two goalkeepers.
The 2006 world champion believes that the two players should play alternately: ” I am going to tell you something. Football has changed enormously, especially in clubs like PSG, Juventus, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. It is sometimes penalizing to have only one titular goalkeeper, in my opinion. If a team like PSG has two very strong goalkeepers as is currently the case, why say that one is the holder and the other number 2? Frankly, it’s not fair to each other. We have to see according to the performance in the match to decide who will play, alternating. “
Not to miss
“Both must have the opportunity to play. The great goalkeepers have no problem playing every three matches, every day or every ten days ”, adds Buffon.
Buffon also returned to his time at PSG and the competition established by Thomas Tuchel with Alphonse Areola: “When I was in Paris with Alphonse Areola, I think I played fewer matches than him. Probably I played the most important but I played less than him. I was happy and I enjoyed seeing him play because he was young and he had the opportunity to show his qualities. I wanted to play too and I was disappointed when I didn’t play. “
