New Juventus signing, Gianluigi Buffon, has insisted he is not interested in regaining either the captain’s armband nor the No.1 jersey in Turin, after completing a move back to his former club.

Buffon had departed Juve after almost 20 trophy-laden years in the summer of 2018 to join Paris Saint-Germain.

Now, at the age of 41, he will compete with Wojciech Szczesny for a place between the posts at the Serie A champions.

However, he has made it clear he is not expecting to receive his former privileges.

“Szczesny wanted to give me the number one and Chiellini the captain’s armband.

“But I am not the kind of person to take anything away from anyone. I have thought about using the No.77,” Buffon revealed to reporters on Thursday.
