Gianluigi Buffon's Top Six Goalkeepers List Is Causing A Stir

Gianluigi Buffon's Top Six Goalkeepers List Is Causing A Stir

Gianluigi Buffon has followed on from Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in selecting his top goalkeepers list in the world but his picks are causing a stir.

The Italian legend was asked the question ahead of Juventus' Champions League second leg clash with Real Madrid and though his actual choices were pretty good, he somehow didn't mention David De Gea in his top six.

"Not taking into account Italian keepers, I would say [Jan] Oblak, [Keylor] Navas, [Marc-Andre] Ter Stegen, Ederson, [Manuel] Neuer and [Thibaut] Courtois," Buffon said, as per Metro.

"I hope I did not forget anybody."

You say that Gianluigi, but leaving out De Gea, widely viewed as the best goalkeeper in the world, is just criminal.

Fans on social media have not been happy with him omitting De Gea from his list:

Modestly not grouping himself in the mix, Ter Stegen's picks are a tad different to Buffon's. He went for De Gea, as well as Alisson, Ederson, his compatriot Manuel Neuer, and returned the favour to Buffon by including him.

Navas, Courtois and Oblak don't get any recognition from the Barca No.1.
