Juventus great Gianluigi Buffon afraid of retirement

Italian Soccer – Serie A – Parma v Salernitana

"I am very excited, but I come to this day with happiness and fulfilment".

Earlier, Juventus President, Andrea Agnelli, said, "Gianluigi Buffon has been with us all the way on this long rollercoaster ride of a journey, with its lows and then the return to Paradise".

Buffon has been offered the chance to keep his career alive in the Argentinian capital with Boca Juniors next season, but is expected to snub that opportunity and announce his retirement, despite admitting it would be challenging to adjust to a life without football. Gigi's eyes don't give me the feeling he wants to stop.

Saturday will be my last match with Juventus and I believe it will be the best way to conclude this adventure.

Juve and Italy great Buffon is expected to reveal his future plans on Thursday amid speculation the 40-year-old goalkeeper and 176-cap worldwide will retire.

"I'm his sister, I love him very much and I'm biased, but I really don't think it's time for goodbye".

"After all, players like us, who have lived the game intensely, have to keep their minds occupied and have a reason to get up, something to fight for".

The 2003 UEFA Club Footballer of the Year ends his career as the current Best FIFA Goalkeeper.

He leaves Juve with 11 Serie A titles to his name and four Coppa Italia trophies.

The Champions League eluded him, though, even though he appeared in three finals, most recently losing out to Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2017.

"Not to mention that in the Champions League, at the Bernabeu, he put in a fantastic performance".

Buffon's career has nevertheless been more about the highs than the lows and, nearly 23 years since making his debut on November 19, 1995, for Parma against AC Milan, he bows out considered as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.
