Buffon: This Is The Only Talent Italy Has!

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has been critical of the Italy national team in recent times, and believes there is only one really talented Italian footballer in the game at the moment.

The 10 Biggest Wasted Talents In Football

In a recent interview, the Italy legend seemed to suggest that his personal relationship with the Italy national team is not a healthy one at the moment.  

Buffon then claimed that his PSG colleague Marco Verratti is currently the only big talent in Italian football, insisting his club and country teammate is often not understood because he is on a different wavelength to others.

"Marco is an incredible player, at this moment he’s the only real talent of Italian football in terms of how he plays the game, the quality of his touch and the way he sees the game," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"When he plays with normal players he can struggle because they don’t understand him, sometimes those who are too good struggle to be understood by others.

"Here (at PSG), Marco is lucky to play alongside great players who are immediately able to understand where the ball will go and where they want it so you see that all his moves are facilitated."

Africa Loses Another Talent To Europe

Verratti, 25, has often been criticised for his performances with Italy, and has just 25 senior international caps to his name.
