Gianluigi Buffon gives his first press conference as a PSG player

"I don't think it's an obsession for me and neither for Paris Saint Germain", said Buffon at his first PSG press conference on Monday.

The veteran goalkeeper confirmed he sought counsel from former Juventus team-mate Blaise Matuidi before opting to join the France global at PSG, where he will play under new coach Thomas Tuchel.

"He told me, "In my opinion, Paris need a person like you, you'll feel good there".

Speaking in Italian after a brief introduction in French, the 40-year-old said that his arrival on a free transfer is not only geared towards continental glory. However, Buffon shocked the world by instead choosing to sign a two-year contract with PSG in one final attempt to lift the Champions League.

"PSG are the team that I followed the most in recent years because I was curious".

"Until this year I played in the national team too and when someone plays in the national team it means they're at the top level".

"I think that, recently, PSG have been very ambitious and showed continued progress".
