    Napoli slam 'shameful and offensive' Juventus celebrations

    Napoli have slammed Juventus' players for broadcasting images of Bianconeri supporters holding up offensive banners targeting Lorenzo Insigne. Juve celebrated their domestic double triumph with an open-top bus parade through Turin on Saturday, with several players streaming the event on social media platforms. Douglas Costa was among the players to do so, with one video on the Brazil winger's Instagram feed showing a fan holding up a coffin-shaped cut-out bearing Insigne's name and the Napoli badge. The video has since been taken down, and Napoli, who led the way in Serie A for much of the season, have released a statement condemning the "shameful and offensive" behaviour. "We are truly outraged by the shameful and offensive attitude of some Juventus players," the Serie A club tweeted. "Serious gestures that offend the dignity of people and a Neapolitan like Insigne. It is unacceptable." Maurizio Sarri's side round off their campaign against relegation-threatened Crotone on Sunday.

    'Any club would want Buffon' - PSG president hints at deal for Juventus legend

    Any club would want Gianluigi Buffon, but Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insists Alphonse Areola will remain the first-choice goalkeeper at Parc des Princes. Buffon bid farewell to Juventus as an illustrious 17-year stay in Turin came to an end on Saturday when he made his final appearance for the club in a 2-1 victory over Verona. The 40-year-old was given an emotional send-off by team-mates, opposition players and fans before Juve celebrated their seventh successive Scudetto at Allianz Stadium. A move to PSG has been touted for Buffon - with Goal revealing that the Ligue 1 champions are prepared to offer him a lucrative contract - and while Al-Khelaifi admitted the veteran keeper would be a benefit for any club, he stated PSG will keep the faith with youth product Areola next season. "Buffon is a fantastic goalkeeper. But Areola is our starter and he will be next season as well," Al-Khelaifi told L'Equipe. "You know me well – do you really think I'd tell you which players we are monitoring? "Now we have Areola. He is our number one for the coming season. "Buffon is a fantastic goalkeeper, charismatic, a great guy. I'm sure that any club would want him."

    Buffon hailed as 'the greatest of all time' by Barzagli ahead of Juventus exit

    Andrea Barzagli lauded team-mate Gianluigi Buffon as the greatest goalkeeper of all time after the Juventus captain played his final game for the Italian champions. There were emotional scenes in Turin where iconic Italian keeper and nine-time Serie A winner Buffon, 40, farewelled Juve in Saturday's 2-1 victory over relegated Verona. Buffon announced on Thursday that he would be calling time on his 17-year Juve career and the Italy international signed off in style, receiving an emotional standing ovation as he was substituted in the second half. With Goal revealing that French champions Paris Saint-Germain are ready to double his salary for 2018-19, Buffon hugged each of his Juve team-mates and several Verona opponents as he made way for Carlo Pinsoglio in the 63rd minute. Barzagli, who shared a warm embrace with Buffon on the pitch, told Sky Sport Italia: "I don't know where he'll go, it's a surprise. "He'll make the right choice. I have always told him everything and we have a great rapport. "We'll miss him, he's a leader and the greatest goalkeeper of all time. He is a man who in the locker room lets everyone take a step up in quality. "He never says anything without thinking it over and everyone listens. "Over the last two years, I've lost a lot in terms of pace and reaction times, but have improved in reading the game. It's a struggle against fast players and experience does help." Fellow Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia added: "I am sad that the captain is leaving. I've played with many champions, but Gigi is special, both on and off the field. "His departure really does leave a hole in Juventus."

    Buffon one of the greatest of all time, says Pjanic

    Gianluigi Buffon is one of the "greatest players of all time" and his Juventus team-mate Miralem Pjanic is honoured to have played alongside him. Italy legend Buffon made his final Bianconeri appearance in the 2-1 win over Verona on Saturday, having announced on Thursday that he would be calling time on his illustrious 17-year stint at the club. And Pjanic – a key part of Juve's double-winning season at the heart of Massimiliano Allegri's midfield – was full of praise for the 40-year-old, who has not yet announced if he will retire altogether and has been offered terms by Paris Saint-Germain. "Buffon is one of the greatest players of all time," Pjanic told Mediaset Premium. "I don't know yet if he's leaving football, but he is leaving his Juve.  "We'll miss him so much, he is a superb person and I am honoured to have played with him." Pjanic netted Juve's second in the victory at Allianz Stadium, curling home a sublime free-kick three minutes after Daniele Rugani put the hosts ahead. And although Alessio Cerci pulled one back for the visitors – with Stephan Lichtsteiner missing a penalty late on – the Serie A champions held firm to cap off the season in winning fashion. "We closed this important campaign with a victory, this seventh Scudetto was the best, as everyone did something extraordinary," Pjanic added. "We are only missing the Champions League and I hope to win it over the next few years. Juventus are certainly building towards that."
