Gary Lineker Sums Up Gianluigi Buffon's Brilliant Career After Point Blank Save

Gary Lineker Sums Up Gianluigi Buffon's Brilliant Career After Point Blank Save

Pretty much everything that can be said about Gianluigi Buffon has been said about him. Somehow at 39 years old the Italian is still pulling off some superb saves, as he did in the first half against Spurs.

Tonight I saw Buffon referred to as a 'SPORTbible merchant,' I guess that refers to a player whose legend has been made greater by the invention of social media and the love of a story and a fashionable face rather than a great player. I'm not sure that's totally fair on Buffon.

Pirlo, another one of our merchants:

In fact that description comes on the back of a 24 hour conversation we've been having on our sport desk about how good the long time Juventus number one still is.

Of course he might not be at his best these days, and his mistake helped Harry Kane score in the first half of Juve's Champions League game with Spurs on Tuesday night and he was poor again for Spurs' equaliser through Christian Eriksen's equaliser. But he's still good for a worldie.

The former Parma man pulled off a great first half save from a Harry Kane header just two yards out in the first half and Gary Lineker summed up how incredible it is that he's still making wonder saves:

And fans on Twitter were loving the save:

Eventually he'll retire and the world of goalkeeping will be a poorer place for it. Until then he can continue being a SPORTbible merchant, we'll happily take responsibility for him- the sexy genius!
