Buffon: New stadium inspired Juventus title push

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon feels moving into their new stadium inspired them to this season's title.

Victory over Cagliari and AC Milan's defeat to Inter handed Juve the Scudetto.

"I can reveal something now. The day after the presentation of the Juventus Stadium I went to see some people who gravitate around us and told him we're winning the Scudetto. I said the same to some of the Milan lads when we were on international duty and they laughed in my face. I didn't take that well!

"The truth is that in August I was really struck by the new stadium, as it gave me huge motivation and refreshed me. I realised that day I belonged to a club that had made history, so we could not afford to stay on the level of the previous two years.

"I said in August I rediscovered the dream and when that happens, it's trouble for everyone else!"
