Buffon plays the derby with Torino, this afternoon at the Allianz Stadium, and thus becomes the absolute recordman for appearances in Serie A, 648, also taking Paolo Maldini off, at 647.
The Juventus goalkeeper, 42 years old last January, has recently signed the extension of the contract with the Juventus club until 2021.
Gigi Buffon told himself in a long live Instagram with Jack Sintini and Randstad:
“Football stirred something inside me, that's why I started playing – revealed the Juventus goalkeeper – and from there came the passion and adrenaline. Then it became an obligation, for 15-20 years I put away the playful part but now I have found the pleasure and the desire to train. I still continue because I'm fine and I know I can still improve. "
The time to stop, however, will come sooner or later:
“I am not sure what I will do, but I am sure of one thing – continued Buffon – and I want to take the fifth: my parents are breaking my boxes, I will take a sabbatical year to finish the training. As a parent I want to lead by example, another goal will be to learn English ". (source ANSA).
