Juve great Buffon afraid of retirement

  • Buffon leaves Juve, but he may still play on elsewhere

Earlier, Juventus President, Andrea Agnelli, said, "Gianluigi Buffon has been with us all the way on this long rollercoaster ride of a journey, with its lows and then the return to Paradise". That run includes the Azzurri's 2006 World Cup triumph, just one of the many trophies and accolades the 40-year-old picked up throughout his career.

The statement read in part, "A big thank you to the president for his kind words". I'm glad you came in so many. "My principles have always been honesty, loyalty and hypocrisy struggle", Buffon said.

It seems an appropriate time for Buffon to retire, having previously stated he would walk away at the end of the season unless Juventus won the Champions League - a dream that was crushed in dramatic fashion at the quarter-final stage after he was sent off for a foul in the area and Real Madrid converted the resulting last-gasp penalty. These feelings are children of an extraordinary and lovely journey, shared with people who have loved me. For that, I have always tried to do my best.

"Only sure thing at the moment is that Saturday I'll play my last game with Juventus".

'After all, players like us, who have lived the game intensely, have to keep their minds occupied and have a reason to get up, something to fight for.

The former Parma goalkeeper will make his 640th and final Serie A appearance for Juventus against Verona on Saturday.

Silvano Martina added: "I can't add anything more because he will reveal what he's going to do next to the press".

"I would say the next week, after some reflections, I will make the ultimate decision".

Juve and Italy great Buffon is expected to reveal his future plans on Thursday amid speculation the 40-year-old goalkeeper and 176-cap worldwide will retire.
