Italian legend Dino Zoff says Gigi Buffon will bounce back from his gaffe in Juventus' draw with Lecce.

Italian legend Dino Zoff says Gigi Buffon will bounce back from his gaffe in Juventus' draw with Lecce.

Buffon lost possession of the ball late in the game against Lecce which allowed the visitors to grab a 1-1 draw.

“These things happen,” Zoff told ANSA. “There is no reason to make a drama out of it. I think that Buffon, even if he hasn’t forgotten about it, has put it behind him.

“It was just an error, a mistake that can happen in the game.

“It would certainly have affected him at the time, but I don’t expect it to cause any problems for him on Sunday.

“Everyone in football, in all professions, make mistakes. It is only different for a goalkeeper because it is more evident, but not more serious.”
