END OF LEGENDARY ERA: Gianluigi Buffon retires at 45 after glorious career with Italy and Juventus

Gianluigi Buffon, who used to be the goalie for Italy, has quit football at the age of 45, after 28 years in which he did great things for both his club and his country. Buffon won 10 Serie A wins with Juventus and one Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain. In 2006, he won the World Cup.

“That’s it, people!” Buffon told him. “You did everything for me. I did everything for you. We both did it.”

Many people think he was one of the best goalkeepers of all time. He finished his career where he started, at Parma, which is in the second-best league in Italy. In his last season, he had a lot of problems with illnesses.Buffon moved to Juve from Parma in 2001 and spent most of his career there, with the exception of a season at PSG in 2018-19. In June 2021, he will move back to Turin and then to Parma. He played for Italy 176 times.

In 1991, when he was 13, Buffon started playing for Parma’s youth team. At first, he was a midfielder, but because he was tall and strong, he was moved to the goalie position. At the age of 17, he played his first game in Serie A for Parma against Milan in November 1995. The game ended in a 0-0 tie.

Buffon played in the Italian top league a record 657 times, making him the most-capped male goalie ever. After Italy didn’t make it to the 2018 World Cup, he stopped playing for his country.

‘That’s all folks!’ – Legendary former Juventus & Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon confirms retirement from football at 45


Gianluigi Buffon, a famous goalie who used to play for Juventus and Italy, has quit football at the age of 45.After two years of playing goalie for his local team, Parma, where he started his career in 1995-1996, Buffon has finally ended an amazing career that has lasted almost 30 years. He has won a lot of prizes, including the World Cup, ten Serie A titles, and a Ligue 1 title. He has also won a lot of individual awards, most notably 13 Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year awards, which is an amazing number.

In a post on social media, Buffon said, “That’s all, folks!” You did everything for me. I did everything for you. We both did it.”Gianluigi Buffon is thought to be one of the best goalkeepers of all time. He got his start in Parma’s school program before making a nаme for himself in Serie A in the late 1990s. Then, in 2001, he made a big €52 million move to Italian giants Juventus. This began a 17-year run with The Old Lady during which Buffon won ten Serie A titles, five Coppa Italias, and six Supercoppa Italias. He also helped the club get to three Champions League finals. He played in more than a thousаnd games for his club, and he also helped Italy win the World Cup in 2006. In the end, he got 176 caps for his country. Buffon said goodbye to his favorite team, Juve, and then played for Paris Saint-Germain and Parma for a short time each. Now 45 years old, he has chosen to hang up his gloves for good.

It’s not clear if the Italy legend will want to become a teacher or a sports commentator, or if he’ll just want to retire quietly after playing at the highest level for a much longer time than most. At this point, he can look back on a long and successful career that made him one of the best keepers the world has ever seen.
