Buffon pleased to see Thohir's 'foreign money' in Serie A

The Italy goalkeeper feels Inter can fight for the title following the arrival of new owner and president Erick Thohir.
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon believes that Inter has the potential to challenge for the Serie A title this season following the arrival of Erick Thohir as the club's new owner and president.

The Nerazzurri sit fourth in the league table following a strong start to the campaign under Walter Mazzarri, but Buffon feels Thohir could prove to be a big boost in the team's bid to return to the Serie A summit.

"The arrival of Thohir at Inter is a big thing. It signifies a huge change. It's good to see foreign money find its way to Serie A," Buffon told Tuttosport. "I would say Inter are Scudetto challengers as well now."

Buffon noted champion Juventus has begun the season in very good form, and would be sitting clear at the top were it not for the record-breaking run of Roma.

"The only reason why we are not sitting top of the table is that Roma have been excellent. But so have we, just look at our results," he said. "The important thing for us at Juventus is that we will not have any regrets in the end. We always want to give everything and get the best out of ourselves."

Juventus currently sits second in Serie A, trailing leader Roma - which won its first 10 games in a row - by one point.
