Gianluigi Buffon: Juventus Need To Close The Gap With Inter

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is gearing himself up for a tough season, and he insists the gap with Inter needs to be closed if his side are to challenge for major honours.

The Italian international is currently on holiday, but he has spoken through his official website as he underlines the guidelines for next term.

"We will start off with the best ingredients in order to do well, but we know that a long season with many objectives is ahead of us," the goalkeeper told his official website.

"Unfortunately the end of season did not go to plan, but we have to continue playing in a balanced league and we have to cancel the gap with Inter."

La Nazionale custodian has also given his views on Italy's failed attempts at the Confederations Cup.

"I am not trying to find excuses, but I am sure that we did not arrive in South Africa in the best condition," added Buffon.

"At best we were only at 60 percent. We will be at our best next year and we will be ready."
