For more than two decades, he has been a watchdog under the goalposts. Buffon is looking forward to a new peak of success in the Italian Serie A.
This Is Buffon’s 648th Game against Torino in the Allianz Stadium at a Juventus jersey. That will be a listing in Italian Serie’A’. It has been a year since he arrived at Juventus, but Buffon was spotted on the side seat the majority of the time. However, in line with the Italian press, the World Cup-winning goalkeeper will take the field tomorrow. On the other hand, the team has announced that Juventus have abandoned Buffon for a year ago.
This match is even more special for Buffon, as many saw the end of Buffon’s career when he played for Paris Saint-Germain last season. The rumor of retirement also spread. But he did nothing at all. Returning to the field like an old Buffon. Buffon will surely want to make the day memorable by winning the match this time.
Legendary footballer Paolo Maldini holds the record for most matches played by an Italian footballer at the highest level of club football since 2009. A decade later, another legend has shared his impeccable achievement. Gianluigi Buffon, the vigilante below the goal post, has touched his former teammate in 648 matches.
Age seems to be a number to Buffon. If not, can anyone play like this even at the age of 42? His current club Juventus signed Buffon for another year last week. Buffon has spent most of his time on the side bench since joining the team last year. However, according to the Italian media, the World Cup-winning goalkeeper will take the field today.
Buffon made his league debut against Parma Calcio about 25 years ago. Buffon said the tension was still the same today. “The truth is, I’m still playing,” he said. Because I still like to play, I still play in a fighting mood.
“I believe I can make more improvements,” he added. When you see that you have more room for improvement and you have that urge inside you, it means you are not satisfied with yourself.
