Gianluigi Buffon Lilian Thuram's Son Share Moment After Competing In A Game Together
Lilian Thuram and Gianluigi Buffon were teammates at both Juventus and Parma in the Italian leagues, but now the goalie has played on the same pitch as the French right-back's son.
And such is the length of time that Buffon has been playing football professionally, his career starting way back in 1995, that the veteran shot-stopper actually played in a game with the son of Thuram - En Avant de Guingamp striker Marcus Thuram.
After Paris Saint-Germain played their Ligue 1 oppotents, Buffon and the 21-year-old attack had this interaction after the match.

Buffon legit went to PSG and benched Areola and Kevin Trapp shamelessly. Being a legend is quite a privilege.- Dextrous. (@mainneli_) August 19, 2018
His move to PSG raised a few eyebrows, but he has been given starts and even made some crucial saves in the opening few games of the season.
