Buffon to retire at the end of the season

Gianluigi Buffon wins FIFA best goalkeeper of the year award

Gianluigi Buffon says he is ready to end his illustrious football career unless Juventus can claim Champions League glory this season.

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. At that point, to try to win the Club World Cup, maybe [Wojciech] Szczęsny could play one game and me another.

The 39-year-old was named as the Best FIFA Goalkeeper this week, ahead of Real Madrid's Keylor Navas and Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer and was seen getting all nervous while receiving the award.

"This is my last season and I am quite convinced of the choices I take", he told Sky Italia. His swansong will be the World Cup finals with Italy next summer - if they can qualify by beating Sweden in next month's playoff.

"I am a very calm person, in the sense that I am not afraid of the future and of what my life may be". I will face my next test with enthusiasm.

"Like with everything, I look for a reason, and the only reason [to continue] would be winning the Champions League".

Age is not a factor for Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon as the Italian goalkeeper is showing no signs of stopping in proving the world that he is the best in the world in terms of goalkeeping despite being in the final chapter of his glittering career.
