Great goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, is likely to retire at Juventus, according to the Old Lady’s chief administrator, Giuseppe Marotta.
35-year-old World Cup winner Buffon was the toast of the town on Tuesday night, after he equalled his good friend Fabio Cannavaro’s all-time Italian caps record of 136 against the Czech Republic.
The Azzurri won the game 2-1 and qualified for the World Cup in Brazil in the process.
Buffon has gone on record to say that he won’t be hanging up his boots and gloves anytime soon, and with Euro 2016 his international goal, he is sure to pass 150 caps.
He is also likely to win much more silverware with Italian club champions Juventus, with the Champions League trophy the only prize missing from his glittering cabinet.
A real hero of Italian football, and arguably the best ‘keeper in the history of the beautiful game, Buffon still has a long career ahead of him, Marotta says.
"Buffon is a true champion," told Gazzetta dello Sport. "He is a superlative professional.
"He deserves this recognition.
"My hope and wish is that he can defend Italy and Juve's goal for many years to come.
"I believe and I hope that he will finish his career with Juve and this is the basis for him to remain at Juve for a long time."
