The World Cup-winning goalkeeper is not ready to call time on his illustrious career any time soon

Gianluigi Buffon has hinted that he could prolong his playing career for another 11 years, with the legendary former Juventus goalkeeper – who is now back on the books at Parma – saying: “I could retire at 55.” He has, at 44 years of age, already agreed to another 12-month contract extension with his Serie B employers.

A man that helped Italy to World Cup glory back in 2006 sees no reason why he should hang up his gloves any time soon, with any talk of calling it a day set to be shelved for the foreseeable future.
