The first picture of Gianluigo Buffon at the San Siro looks more like a video game than a real life photo.
The Juventus captain had the perfect pose and smile, but his picture was actually taken on the pitch on the day the club won the Champions League.
“I was in training at the time, so I had to take pictures and videos,” Buffon said.
The picture shows Buffon and fellow captain, Andrea Pirlo, with Buffon holding the trophy and Pirlos shirt, while the camera is on PirloS shirt. “
My first goal was against Juventus, I went for a corner and scored the winning goal.”

“It was my first goal, I was in the team,” Buffone said.
It’s worth noting that the player in the picture is not wearing the shirt, but the one on the ground.
“The players’ shirts are supposed to be on the sidelines, but it was in my box,” he said.
Buffon was an absolute pleasure to watch as the team won the first leg of the Champions the previous season.
He was also part of the first two Scudetti, scoring a goal in each of those.
The first goal of the second leg against Napoli was also an impressive one, as he had the chance to score the winning one.
“At that time I was just a little bit nervous and I couldn’t be happy,” Buffones said.
After that goal, he said the mood turned positive.
“A week or two later I scored my second goal, and it was fantastic.
It was the most important moment of my career.
It showed that I was an important player in my team.
It made me feel like I had a lot to offer.”
After scoring the winning penalty, he scored his third goal of that season.
“There were many goals in my career, but this was the one I felt most happy about,” Buffoner said.
The picture was taken before the game and he had to go back to his hotel for the photo shoot.
“When I arrived, I had just got the picture taken, and I saw [Napoli coach] Gianluio Cerutti and he was very nice,” Buffona said.
Pirlots shirt was taken by another player in that match, Andrea Barzagli, and Buffones was the only one of the three in the crowd.
Buffone was a key figure in the Juventus side during the previous two years.
He scored 13 goals and added nine assists for the Bianconeri, while Barzaglis 13 goals helped Juventus reach the final of the Serie A title, with the win over Roma.
“This goal was probably the most emotional of my time with the club, it was a dream come true,” Buffoni said.
As a result, Buffone, Pirloes and Barzagls jersey will be retired by Juventus for the next season.
The team’s official Twitter account, @JuventusJuventus, has also posted a picture of Buffon with his shirt.
