I know it's easy to be gracious when you've gotten a good result, and I'm not sure what kind of mood Gianluigi Buffon and the rest of Juventus would be in had Fabio Quagliarella not scored that late equaliser at Stamford Bridge. But when you're one of the legends of the game, taking the time to give praise to a youngster who's had a special moment in a match is a really wonderful thing to do, and that's exactly what the Juve captain did following their 2-2 draw with Chelsea:
Gianluigi Buffon on Oscar: "I won’t say it’s nice to concede, but it’s nice to be a part of a great goal like that. Compliments to him."— Luca Persico (@LPCalcio) September 19, 2012
He's talking, of course, about the 33rd minute strike that made it 2-0. It was a special night for Oscar, and it was incredibly good of Buffon to acknowledge his brilliant second goal. What a class act.
