Goalkeeper of the Juventus and of the Italian national football team, Gianluigi Buffon, announced that in a “99.9 percent”, he will retire after the 2018 World Cup and that he would only be one more year if he wins the next Champions League.
“In a 99.9 percent, I will retire after the World Cup, but there is an agreement with the president (of Juventus, Andrea) Agnelli.It is a request from him.If anything special happens, I could postpone my withdrawal in one year,” he said in a Interview with Sky Sport.
Even without saying it explicitly, Buffon referred to the only trophy lacking at the club level, the European Cup, and hinted that he would extend his career only in case of a victory next year.
“It’s very complicated that it can happen,” added the goalkeeper, who lost on June 3 in the European final against Real Madrid in Cardiff.
The reason why Buffon would decide to continue playing one more year is the fact that a European victory would allow him to also play the European Super Cup and the World Cup, something that has not yet reached in his career.
Buffon, 39, also reported that after his retirement he will take the time to think carefully about what he will do in the future.
