What a career.
Juventus: Gianluigi Buffon signs year-long contract extension with Serie A side
Certainly the best of his generation.
I played in goal all my footie career and 'retired' at 45. Refereed for a year or so, then had my first heart attack at 49!
I refereed and played in goal as a teenager, then switched to just being in the middle but I haven't done a game in 8-9 years and gave up my registration about 6 years ago. Would love to get back into either of them but it's just a problem of time!
Such a great professional, upon his return to Juventus he was offered the number one jersey and the captaincy, he turned both offers down.
He's up there for best of all-time for me. Such consistent greatness over such a long time, also sticking round to get them out of Serie B as well when he could have walked into any team and named his price.
Future Italian boss?
Not sure what interest he has in management but would be interesting to see
