Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon has said that he has no plans of stepping down from the beautiful game despite turning 42 earlier this year. The veteran made the comeback to Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain on a Bosman last summer and he has since managed 11 appearances across all competitions.
Italy’s legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has thanked Juventus after they gave him the opportunity to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo. The 41-year-old had become a free agent following his one-year stint with Paris Saint-Germain and instead of taking up a new challenge, he made the comeback with Juventus, where he made 656 appearances between 2001 and 2018.
Speaking to reporters, Buffon expressed the situation of playing with Ronaldo as beautiful. He added that he had the similar opportunity of working with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at Parc des Princes and he is pleased to be concluding his career with such players around him, he said: "It's beautiful. At the end of my career I was able to play with Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe thanks to Paris Saint-Germain, now it will happen with Cristiano Ronaldo thanks to Juventus. "I think that for players with my experience and with my history, to be able to end the career in such a way is a splendid gift."
