Buffon on 4th: “He’s worthy of Ballon d’Or like Haaland and Mbappé”

Gianluigi Buffon, head of the national team delegation, recently spoke at the presentation of the book Kvaradona. Un miracolo georgiano. He said, “I don’t want to be banal, but having lived in locker rooms, I know that if you don’t know firsthand what is being created, it’s difficult to judge what the coach can give. Then, of course, repeating success is always more difficult, especially in a reality that is not accustomed to it.”

Buffon also mentioned, “Last year Napoli played on the wings of enthusiasm, and there was a gap with rivals due to Napoli’s merit. Now they’ve started from scratch and at times the energy isn’t the same as before. Kvaratskhelia intrigued me from the beginning; he immediately stood out in Italy.”

He further added, “Physically, he reminds me of Lentini, that type of player. Perhaps Lentini was more linear in the long run, the Georgian in dribbling, in movements has abilities that I have seen in few. When there was talk of the Ballon d’Or in relation to Kvara, it’s telling the truth. Obviously, he will have to find the right situation, but as a talent, he could compete with the likes of Mbappè and Haaland.”
