Buffon leaves Juve, but he may still play on elsewhere

Buffon leaves Juve, but he may still play on elsewhere

The Italian made the confirmation on Thursday during a press conference at the Allianz Stadium.

Buffon's Juventus career came to a frustrating end over the last 12 months. He is leaving after making 656 official appearances for the club.

Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini will take over the role of captain.

Asked directly about the Premier League, Buffon said: "I said that I received a few proposals, very interesting ones, both for on the field and off it".

"After that match, I went beyond the limits with the things I said about the referee and I apologise for that."

"Fifteen days ago, I was already an ex-player", he said. Proposals have arrived for some new challenges on and off the pitch.

I'll let these three days pass and then I will make a definitive decision, completely calmly. Now I'm not sure any more. It ends a run of 17 years for Buffon as the shot stopper for the Old Lady, and he ends his time at Juve as a record holder in many categories. "I am a competitive animal and I wouldn't be able to live in that situation". An nine-time Serie A victor, Buffon also won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, a remarkable run since joining Juventus from Parma in 2001 for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper.

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, who made his professional debut for Parma in 1995 before joining Juve in 2001, had planned to end his career at the 2018 World Cup, which would have been his sixth, but Italy astonishingly failed to qualify for the first time since 1958.

But his return to help the Azzurri in friendlies against Argentina and England sparked controversy for those who wanted to rebuild the team.

"It's something that I'd need to think long and hard about".

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to rumours that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp could make a sensational move for Juventus goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon.

The Italian global holds the record for going 974 minutes in Serie A football without conceding a goal and has kept 300 clean sheets in 655 competitive club matches.

"Saturday will be my last match with Juve and it will be the best way to conclude this great, incredible adventure, and to end it with two great trophies is fantastic".
