Gianluigi Buffon: Italy goalkeeper to play final game for Juventus

Latest news

    Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has announced he will play his final game for Juventus on Saturday after 17 years with the club.

    The World Cup winner, 40, will lift his ninth Serie A title against Hellas Verona at the Allianz Stadium.

    Buffon said he changed his mind about retiring 15 days ago and has received job offers on and off the pitch.

    “Next week, after two or three days of reflection and serenity, I will take my decision,” he said.

    “15 days ago, I was already an ex-player. Now I’m not sure any more. Proposals have arrived for some new challenges on and off the pitch. The most important off the pitch is from Juventus.”

    Buffon, who joined Juventus from Parma in 2001, has ruled out joining another Italian club.
