Turin Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon assured this Wednesday that he has no intention of hanging up his gloves at the end of the season, when his contract with the 'bianconero' club ends, and he explained that “as long as he has a good level” he will continue playing despite his age. Buffon, 43, highlighted his good moment and his abilities to continue defending the 'Vecchia Signora' goal. “Continue? I measure the width and height of my jumps every week: as long as I see that they are going well I keep going … as long as I have a good level I will continue playing, but as soon as I see that they are going wrong I will be the first to stop, “he told Skysports.
In this sense, Buffon said that “the most important thing” is that he faces the rest of the season in good physical shape and with great confidence. “I do not reach this goal by crawling, but by jumping more and this is the greatest satisfaction and the greatest pride that I have. It's the way you can do things to make a difference, “added the goalkeeper.
Buffon, world champion with Italy in 2006, lives his nineteenth season at Juventus, to which he adds six with Parma, his debut club in Calcio, and one with Paris Saint-Germain (2018-19) in his only experience away from Italian football. He has won 11 Leagues, five Cups and eight Super Cups in his entire career.
