Buffon reflects on joyous 2012

31 December 2012 22:29

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is elated with how his year went, and is aiming for even more success in 2013.

The goalkeeper was a crucial member of the Serie A-winning Juve team under Antonio Conte and helped Italy reach the final of Euro 2012, where they were beaten comfortably by Spain.

The 34-year-old wrote on his Facebook page: "2012 gave me a lot of joy.

"Juventus bounced back to win the Scudetto, I had a beautiful European adventure with the national team, I lifted my first trophy as captain and then (Juve had) a really superb beginning to this season.

"This group aims higher in every competition. In 2013 I hope to convey all my determination and confidence so that the team keep being able to fight on every front."

Juve currently sit top of Serie A on 44 points after 18 matches, seven points clear of second-placed Lazio.

In Europe, Conte's team have been drawn against Celtic in the last 16 after knocking Champions League title holders Chelsea out at the group stage.
