Buffon happy for Juventus to win title while not playing

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has no problem winning the Scudetto, despite not playing yesterday.

AS Roma's thrashing by Catania handed the title to Juve, which do not play until tonight.

"It is the second time I've won a Scudetto without playing, as it happened about 10 years ago. It's different, a special sensation, but still wonderful," the goalkeeper told Mediaset Premium.

"Of course I prefer the satisfaction of winning on the field, that moment the whistle blows and you have given everything you've got, both physical and psychological."
