|Claudio Marchisio says Juventus captain Gigi Buffon ‘deserved to be on Ballon D’Or podium’ and praises Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala.
The goalkeeper wasn’t shortlisted for football’s showcase award last month, leading Italy to not cast a vote in protest.
“Gigi deserved to be on the podium for the Ballon D’Or,” Marchisio said to French magazine So Foot.
“Not just for his career, but also because he’s still the best between the posts. I’d like to see where Messi and Ronaldo are at his age…
“Pogba quickly realised that he’s a phenomenon, but let’s not forget that we’re talking about a kid.
“I hope he stays for a long time with the Bianconeri because he can still grow a lot with us.
“Dybala? I knew that he was a pure talent, but I feared he might lose his way in the opening rounds of the season given everyone’s problems.
“Instead he immediately adapted, he’s very European in the way he trains.”
