Juventus keeper Buffon again slams World Cup ball

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has again slammed the World Cup ball.

Italy's No1 is among many who have bitterly criticised the Jabulani ball that will be used in South Africa.

"The official World Cup ball is indecently bad," he snapped. "If Andrea Pirlo misplaces a pass, he does it by 10cm, but with this ball 10cm become 3m.

"I've never played against Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, so I'd be curious to know what that was like, although obviously it'd be better with a different ball."
