Juventus keeper Buffon hails impact of new signing Pirlo

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon feels Andrea Pirlo will prove one of the season's great signings.

Pirlo was outstanding in victory over Parma on Sunday.

"When Pirlo told me that he was coming to Juventus the first thing that I told him was 'thank goodness'," stated the goalkeeper.

"Getting a player of his level and worth was the deal of the century - especially as he was also available on a free transfer.

"When I saw him play, I thought 'there is a God' because his footballing skill is really embarrassing," added Buffon.

"I saw Galliani in the summer and I thanked him for making the championship a much more balanced affair."
