Buffon to retire unless Juventus win Champions League

Buffon to retire unless Juventus win Champions League

Italy and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon says he will retire at the end of the season unless his side win the Champions League.

However, the iconic custodian believes there is little left he has to achieve and with Wojciech Szczesny providing competition for the No.1 role, only success in Europe's elite competition will keep him on the pitch. As a effect, playing on for one or two more years would not take anything away from or add anything to what I have already done.

"This is my last season and I'm pretty sure of the choices I make", he told Sky Sports in Italy, adding he wouldn't change anything just to have a couple more years as no.1 for club and country.

Manchester United star David de Gea reportedly did not receive a single vote in FIFA's Best Goalkeeper of the Year award.

Buffon hopes of playing the 2018 FIFA World Cup for Italy who face Sweden in a qualifying playoff next month.

"I am a very calm person, in the sense that I am not afraid of the future and of what my life may be".

Phil Jones expected to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Huddersfield
United will be looking to make history by keeping an eighth clean sheet in the opening nine league games of the season. Sometime I feel being good defensively is a crime, but that is a way of getting results.

"In that case, I think Szczesny and I could split time. but with a goalkeeper like him behind me, I think it's normal that I'll be stepping aside next year".

"The a year ago has been fantastic for Juventus and me but it wasn't enough to win in Europe". Cristiano was pivotal in Real Madrid's successful pursuit to win UEFA Champions League and Spanish league La Liga in season 2016-2017.

If Buffon will not be able to win the Champions League, his farewell match, most likely, will take place at the world Championships in Russian Federation.

Juventus, European champions in 1985 and 1996, have finished runners-up in the Champions League twice in the past three years.

"I want to end my career with a big victory".
