Tacconi jumps to defence of Juventus keeper Buffon

Former Juventus goalkeeper Stefano Tacconi has jumped to the defence of Gigi Buffon.

Buffon has been criticised after Juve's defeat to Fiorentina.

"These kind of moments can happen," Tacconi told TMW. "You just have to know how to get out of them.

"I hope that Gigi accepts that he too can make a mistake and that he doesn't feel as if he is invincible. He just has to think about playing.

"A goalkeeping problem for Cesare Prandelli as well? I don't think so. What is more important is the organisation of a team. The goalkeeper is a minor issue."
