- Reuters picMILAN, April 17 ― Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon conceded yesterday that sometimes he gets it wrong but that the dramatic Champions League game against Real Madrid had made him feel alive.

Buffon was sent off for dissent in the final minute of a 3-1 quarterfinal, second leg defeat at Madrid after confronting English referee Michael Oliver over his decision to award the hosts a penalty during added-on time.

The Juventus goalkeeper told reporters after the match that Oliver had "a garbage bin for a heart". I don't know if it was correct or not, I don't care, but Buffon was also sent off and therefore denied the opportunity to save the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty. I am in harmony with the club, I go on vacation when the transfer window opens because I trust the club completely. It was a week that allowed me to experience strong emotions, beautiful, pure adrenaline.

Juventus ― two-time losing finalists in the past three years ― bounced back from their Champions League disappointment with a 3-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday which puts them on the brink of a seventh consecutive Serie A title.

Boca's proposal is that Buffon join the club for six months initially, during which time the Copa Libertadores will be in play and a keeper of Buffon's stature could be a useful addition.

They nearly won it late on when Arkadiusz Milik's close-range shot was brilliantly saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma, making his 100th Serie A appearance at the age of 19.

Meanwhile, Italian referees' chief Marcello Nicchi criticised Buffon earlier Monday for his post-match rant.

Speaking to Mediaset Premium, Allegri said: "I have a contract until 2020 and I am happy here. It wasn't a situation where you can say it's a definite penalty".

"I know other people are supporting her, she's always been a dynamic educator and a good referee", he said.
