Gianluigi Buffon shared his thoughts on the foreign investment in Calcio in recent years in an interview with Kicker: “The Americans took Roma, The Chinese have taken the Milan clubs: Poor Italians. It is a setback for our football and our traditions.”

    just retire already Buffon, you make players like Perin, Donna, Meret, Sirigu, etc dont have chance at national team. That is a setback for Italian regeneration.

    He is right that its a setback or atleast a change to the italian traditions, but its a necessary one, because the money simply isnt there for Italy to keep up without foreign investment.

    If anything, more foreign investment is sorely needed to improve the quality of serie a. So in that regard we should actually not hope the chinese deal for Milan falls through, although as a rival fan it would be hilarious to see them sticking with Berlusconi.

    I always knew he’s retarded.

    Hmm He says that foreign investment in Italian football is bad for Serie A – what he means is “foreign investment is bad for JUVENTUS”- he´s simply getting nervous about the future for his Juventus-domination!

  • Playmaker

    Poor goalkeeper, playing in serie B It is a setback for our football and our traditions.

  • nerazzuritilldie

    Mates….you didnt get his meaning….he means “Mafia involvement brings Rube back to glory a along with referees decisions make Rube the best!!”

  • Inter DiHati
