The 39-year-old Gianluigi Buffon, who will be 40 on January 28 next year, has been a Juventus goalkeeper since 2001, when he was brought in from parma with the most expensive transfer record for a goalkeeper at that time, 52 million Euros, a pretty fantastic price .
Buffon said he is very proud to be able to continue playing at the highest level until his age of 40 years, Buffon himself has previously said that the 2018 World Cup tournament in Russia will be his last tournament before deciding to hang up.
“I started my career playing with players born in the 60s and I will finish with those born in the 2000s. I often think it’s unusual to find players who can link themselves to football for 40 years,” Buffon said.
“It is a pride for me, football has changed a lot, it is now more difficult, and even so I have become a protagonist,” he concluded.
16 years with the Bianconeri, Gianluigi Buffon has won titles, including 10 Serie A titles, one Serie B title, three Coppa Italia titles, Supercoppa Italiana title, while with the Italian national team, Buffon successfully won the 2006 World Cup trophy ago.
