Haven't seen thread about this GOAT. For me the best GK in the history of football. 38 years old and still playing like he's 20. Those reflexes... damn, I will surely miss him.

This weekend against AC Milan.

I opened a thread for him in the Multimedia section: http://www.goallegacy.net/t23058-legendary-keepers-gianluigi-gigi-buffon-superman

(But I'm all for appreciating him in the GenSec, too :bow: )

Don't know what you mean by reliable, but from my point of view Gigi is still world-class and one of the best GKs around.

Officially announced he's leaving Juventus




But he's not retiring just yet as he's received some 'proposals' apparently. I saw Liverpool, Real Madrid and PSG linked in the Italian papers. Probably BS though.

Could see him going back to Parma.

The GK GOAT.

Massive respect and admiration. We were lucky to have him at Juve, and have him become the flag of our club. 17 years at Juve and 20+ at the top of football.

would have liked to have seen him retire at Juve, hope he doesn't go to another top flight club, go to MLS or something for a season.

Greatest keeper of the last 20 years and most likely the greatest ever.
Godlike in his peak and still world class till 40 year old.

Other great keepers come and go but Gigi has consistently been a beast ever since his debut till now that he's retiring.

Thank you for everything Gigi. You will be missed.

(hopefully I can hold my tears on his final game)

Grazie Grazie Grazie

You were literally the reason I watched so much football, you were the reason I also played in goal, you were the reason we even had a chance in 06, and you have been an inspiration ever since.

As a man, as a captain, as an ambassador to the game and someone generally loved by all, thank you Gigi.

Class. GOAT

Buffon: "17 years in bianconero that officially end today. 17 years of friends, companions, tears, victories, defeats, trophies, words, anger, disappointments, happiness and many, many emotions. I will never forget anything. I will always carry everything with me."

Bumping this thread, because he's announced his retirement today:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/66378584

Congrats to him on a super career! He's definitely ranked up there with the greatest goalkeepers of all-time.

What a legend, what a man

Best keeper of all time he single-handedly won us so many games over the years and certainly not his fault if never won CL. My favorite "player" ever for how reliable he was. At over 40 years old i was still enjoying his presence at the club.

His season at PSG is a stain on his upper deck profile. Weird move since he came back as 2nd keeper to Szczesny which is the reason he left at first. Anyways i've accepted his banterous end of career long ago, nowadays at Parma conceding goals almost every match, you'd think he hang on until his 50s Laughing
