[Former Juventus and Lazio goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi sadly admits that Italy have no adequate cover for Gianluigi Buffon] The crisis is there for anyone to see, and the gap in class between Buffon and the rest of the pack is massive, but I think it is partly his fault, because he is the best in the world and no one can stand up to him

Is it because one too many foreign ‘keepers are landing in Italy? Yes, Italian ones have clearly less opportunities to shine, but I can understand how the clubs think. If a talented 18-year-old goalkeeper is already worth €4m, they are better suited going to South America and capture an already seasoned shot-stopper.

We must correct the mistakes that have been done over the past few years and rebuild our excellent school. It was the best until some twenty years ago, but then something happened. Too many youngsters are benched after a single blunder nowadays and that puts too much pressure on them

[Former Juventus goalkeeper and current Italy goalkeeping coach Angelo Peruzzi believes Gianluigi Buffon is better than Inter custodian Julio Cesar] Julio Cesar is very good, but for me the strongest is still Buffon. I think those who criticised him went over the top as you have to expect that he wasn’t the real Buffon after being out with injury for three months. I think Del Piero is fantastic and he has always been a protagonist over the years. I still think we will see him with La Nazionale

[Angelo Peruzzi, the ex-Juventus and Lazio ‘keeper, has opined on the season ahead and believes that the Old Lady will be a real force to be reckoned with] [Juventus have] a strong, compact and well-matched squad. Above all, the midfield is particularly impressive for solidity, quality and the number of options. I don’t think it is inferior even to the great Barcelona. I think he is keeping a low profile, which is ideal for a coach. He knows his football and has clear ideas. He doesn’t lack anything that will stop him from winning again. I know the philosophy of the club and of Ferrara. Juventus will always go out to win. Obviously the Champions League will be more difficult [to win than the scudetto]. [Del Piero] is extraordinary. He isn’t young any more, but he continues to be decisive. What’s more, he keeps on scoring! Marchisio and De Ceglie - they will be revelations

[Angelo Peruzzi Tips Juventus To Push Inter All The Way] It was an already competitive group that has been strengthened, particularly in midfield. They will do well, both in the Champions League and in Serie A, where they will be the main rival of favourites Inter. Ciro is a friend, but he already had his own staff. I love being in the Azzurri setup. When I will have completed my Master’s in Coverciano, we’ll see …

[Angelo Peruzzi Pleads With Milan Star Alessandro Nesta To Come Out Of International Retirement] Dear Sandro, you have been unable to finish a World Cup three times due to as many injuries: give it another try as it’s your last chance. Nesta is an exceptional man and his coherent stance shows that. He has great respect for the group and only quit because of physical problems. But now that he has overcome them and is fit, he is still among the best in the world in his role. And he would be a starter in any national side

[Angelo Peruzzi Thinks Inter-Juventus & Lazio-Roma Might Be ‘Decisive’ In Scudetto Race] It all goes down to Inter-Juventus and Lazio-Roma. It is a decisive Rome derby. It is a different game to any other and I know what it means to experience it

[Peruzzi is currently a scout for Italy boss Marcello Lippi and will sit next to the tactician at the World Cup finals this summer. But a role at Lazio might be in his future after patching things up with president Claudio Lotito] There is something going on with Lazio. I have received a formal offer from Lotito, but for now I am focused on the World Cup in South Africa

[Former Roma goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi has doubted Marcello Lippi will step into the club should a coaching job become available] Even last year Roma started badly. And now Adriano has got injured when he was starting to show form. I heard from Lippi last week and he told me he has no intention of taking a club role. But anything can happen. Though I find it unlikely that he can become the coach at Roma
