Buffon resigns as Juventus goalkeeper

Buffon resigns as Juventus goalkeeper

Buffon intends to wait to make his final decision until he is no longer "overwhelmed by emotions", having chose to call time on a 17-year spell in Turin.

"Saturday will be my last match for Juventus".

Agnelli confirmed Wojciech Szczesny will likely be Juve's new number one next season and Buffon thinks the Poland worldwide has benefited from the experience in the Allianz Stadium dressing room.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has announced that he will leave the club at the end of the season.

"As for what I said off the pitch, I said a few days later that I crossed the line and that's clear". Proposals have arrived for some new challenges on and off the pitch. He played there until 2001 when he became a member of Juventus.

However reports now suggest that he could now be tempted to move to another club with a decision to be made after his final game. "I am a competitive animal and I wouldn't be able to live or feel at ease in that situation".

Buffon added that he is "not someone who carries rancour", but in light of this "apology", it's clear that the Italian clearly still harbours resentment towards Oliver.

Buffon ends his Juventus career with 18 trophies including nine Scudettos, four Coppa Italias and five Italian Super Cups. With the Turin Grande goalkeeper 9-time champion Italy and three times reached the Champions League final.

What else was said by Buffon in his farewell press conference?

I love this club and my family love it here too'. And while Juventus are celebrating their seventh straight Serie A title, Buffon is thinking about the future.

Although if you're Buffon, it's surely an opportunity too good to miss, with PSG likely to be one of the favourites for the Champions League next season - particularly after Neymar's return. Only Paolo Maldini has made more appearances in Serie A than Buffon, who has 639.

The captain's armband, which Buffon has worn since Alessandro Del Piero's departure in 2012, will be handed to another veteran, defender Giorgio Chiellini.
