Rodrigo Bentancur believes Gigi Buffon is “on another level” while being at Juve has improved him as a player.

The Uruguayan midfielder has been a revelation since joining the Bianconeri in the summer, earning a call up to the national side as well as starting a number of games for Juventus.

“Since I’ve been in Italy, my recovery times have improved and I am slowly getting better as a player too,” Bentancur told Sport 890.

“For example, they have already worked on the way I mark opponents. Since coming here, I have also put on 5kg of muscle.

“Gigi? On my first day, Buffon received me in this incredible way. He surprised me, as he knew who I was, he knew my name. He’s a phenomenon and always gives me advice. Buffon is on another level.”
