De Gea loves Buffon

38-year-old Gianluigi Buffon has fans all over the world and it appears Manchester United keeper David De Gea is one of them.

The 25-year-old Spaniard was hailed for a couple of stunning saves in last night’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool, with ex-teammate Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez praising De Gea on Twitter.

Despite being labelled ‘TOP’ by the Mexican striker, Manchester United star David De Gea clearly thinks there is one man who is better than him.

The Spanish number one was obviously watching Lyon’s match against Juventus in the Champions League and could no longer hold in his admiration for veteran Italian stopper Gianluigi Buffon.

Buffon saved a penalty in the first half and an unbelievable reflex save in the second half caused De Gea to tweet about the Juventus legend.

De Gea may be ‘TOP’ but Buffon is ‘Top Top’. 10 man Juventus won 1-0 away in Lyon thanks to Man of the Match Gianluigi Buffon.
