Gianluigi Buffon: Italy goalkeeper to retire unless Juventus win Champions League

Gianluigi Buffon: Italy goalkeeper to retire unless Juventus win Champions League”

The now 39-year-old has spent over 15-years playing for the Bianconeri, while also recording well over 150 appearances for the Italian national team.

Legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon at the end of the season will put an end to his career.

If he does win the competition then he may continue as a back-up to former Arsenal man Wojciech Szczesny.

He's leading Italy in their World Cup 2018 campaign, but has said he's "99.9 percent certain" it will be his last tournament at home or overseas.

The Real Madrid forward was crowned player of the year on Monday at the FIFA Best ceremony at the London Palladium theater attended by runner-up Messi and third-placed Neymar. "More than anything, I am a serene person in that I have no fear for the future and what could be my life".

"One or two more years wouldn't add or take away from what I've already achieved", he told Sky Italia. "But I think with a goalkeeper like him, it is normal that next year I'll be aside", he added. I'm proud of it but I want to say thanks to my club, my coach and team-mates because they help me to make it possible, ' Buffon said.

"The past year has been fantastic for Juventus and me but it wasn't enough to win in Europe".

If Buffon will not be able to win the Champions League, his farewell match, most likely, will take place at the world Championships in Russian Federation.

The world's greatest goalkeeper has been on the losing side in three Champions League finals, including two of the last three, with Barcelona and Real Madrid cruelly breaking gorgeous Gianluigi's heart in 2015 and this year.

Would like to finish his career with a big win.
