An extraordinary career, Buffon retires from football at the age of 45


Only the formalization is expected, but it is already known that Gianluigi Buffon has decided to end it with the football played.

The Italian media have confirmed that the Italian goalkeeper has made the decision and will now communicate it through social networks and a press conference.

At the age of 45, the famous Italian goalkeeper, who has made a name for himself with the teams of Parma, Juventus and PSG, has decided to end a wonderful career.

Buffon actually had one year left on his contract with Parma, but an agreement was easily found between the parties for the goalkeeper to end it here.


A career that started at Parma in the distant year 1995 and ends at the same club after 28 years.

He spent most of his career at Juventus, from 2001 to 2021, winning many trophies in Italy, but the highlight for him will always be his success with the Italian national team jersey in the 2006 World Cup.

It remains to be seen whether he will continue his career, as he has received various proposals, the most interesting of which is undoubtedly the role of the head of the Italian representative delegation, a position left vacant after the death of Gianluca Viali.
