Gianluigi Buffon Announces He Will Leave Juventus At The End Of The Season

Gianluigi Buffon Announces He Will Leave Juventus At The End Of The Season

Gianluigi Buffon has announced he will leave Juventus at the end of the season.

The 40 year-old will play his last game for the Bianconeri against Hellas Verona at the weekend in what is sure to be an emotional send-off.

It was thought that Buffon was announcing his retirement after a glittering career that has seen him win almost everything there is to win - the one glaring omission from his trophy collection being the coveted Champions League prize that has evaded him.

The legendary Italian reached the final on three occasions, in 2003, 2015 and 2017 respectively but was on the losing side on all three occasions.

While the European Cup will forever be associated with him, Buffon will always be regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in football history - and a man who won 11 Serie A titles with Juventus, not to mention the 2006 World Cup with Italy.

However, it appears 'Gigi' hasn't decided exactly what his next step is and he is considering several offers on and off the pitch - one of which is a role upstairs at the club.

What we do know is that his glorious 17-year stint playing in Turin is coming to an end and he will depart having won two trophies in his final season - bring his total career haul to 26.
