Gigi Buffon's supporters insist the Juventus goalkeeper isn't bothered about the words of Franz Beckenbauer.

Beckenbauer branded Buffon a "pensioner" after Juve's first-leg Champions League quarterfinal defeat at Bayern Munich.

"The words of Beckenbauer? For Gigi, when you talk about his career, its useless to answer ...," his agent Silvano Martina told TMW. "I believe that even Beckenbauer will come to Turin to see the game.

"Juve? They can surprise, why not?"
