At 39, he is still considered to be one of the best goalkeepers around. Time is passing even for him though. He knows it, and he has decided to… do something about it.
I’m 99.9 percent certain of retirement
Gianluigi Buffon told Sky Sport 24, when asked if the World Cup Finals in a year from now will be his last official games.
I’m going to have one final, intense season, rich in big moments, and then it will be time to say enough is enough
the legendary Italian keeper said, sounding sure of his decision. Absolutely sure? What about that 0.01%?
We’ve just left one small possibility open with the president
the Bianconeri captain revealed, referring to a talk he has had with Andrea Agnelli, Juve’s chief.
That is, if we manage to win the Champions League, I will carry on playing one more year to try to win the Club World Cup and other trophies
Buffon said, showing how eager he is to fulfill his last big dream, win the Champions League with Juventus, something he… touched twice the last three years, only to see Barcelona and Real Madrid deprive him of that joy.
