Italian Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon To Retire From Football At Age 40

Italy and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has announced his plans to retire in two years time. Buffon who is 38-year-old now said he has made up his mind to quit from his footballing career once he turns 40 and that is his final decision.

He told French magazine So Foot: ‘Even if I were offered twice my salary elsewhere, I would stay at Juventus.
‘Doing so would make me proud as it is a worthy thing to do. I want to play at this level until I’m 40, then that will be it.’

“I have a wealth of experience, but I do not want to coach. I rather like the role of recruiter. They are ambitious. I would go to nations like the United States or China, which have great potential for a large population.”
