Ex-Juventus captain Buffon happy with PSG experience

Former Juventus captain Gigi Buffon admits he's enjoying his football in France.

Buffon joined PSG last summer on a free transfer.

"If I'm this happy and enthusiastic now, I owe it to my new teammates and the atmosphere in the dressing room," Buffon told France Football.

“There's a lot of good humour. There's less stress here than in Italy, it's new to me!

“In Italy we're sometimes a bit to excessive with certain things, and a little too obsessed with football.

“The approach to matches and training, for example, is not the same here. It's more serene, more relaxed, more joyful.

“At home - and not only at Juve, where the requirements and the mentality are unique - it's much more stressful.

“Even when you play against weaker teams, preparing for the fixture can be wearying sometimes."
