Buffon, who is an icon at Juve but left the club at the end of last season to join French giants PSG, knows full well how devastating Ronaldo was against the Old Lady in multiple Champions League campaigns, including last season when Real Madrid knocked Juve out on their way to winning the tournament.
“I hope Ronaldo can give what he’s given for all the teams he played in,” the veteran goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia (via Football Italia).
“Certainly he won’t give Juventus the sorrows he’s given us in recent years…Juventus can’t spring any surprises: they have a skilled board and President, plus their history, team and fans are so great that if it they don’t win, they go close.”
Buffon, 40, joined Juventus from Parma in 2001, and went on to make 656 appearances for the Turin outfit - collecting five Italian cups, one UEFA cup, six Italian Super cups and nine Serie A titles in the process.
However, a Champions League trophy with Juventus evaded the iconic goalkeeper, who was acrimoniously sent off in the second leg against Real Madrid last season, with Ronaldo converting a penalty moments later to take his side to the semi-finals.
However, showing his class as always, Buffon has wished nothing but success for Ronaldo as he embarks on his new career with I Bianconeri - though one wonders if his tone might change should PSG face Juventus this season.
