Agent: 'Buffon could coach Juve'

Gianluigi Buffon’s agent believes the goalkeeper has what it takes to not only become a coach but also manage Juventus. ‘He understands football.’ 

Buffon retired from international football in 2018 and is due to turn 42 in September, despite recently extending his contract with Juve.

Gianluigi Donnarumma has so far taken over the veteran’s No 1 shirt for Italy, but Silvino Martina felt there were two others still in with a shout.

“Meret and Perin are two great goalkeepers,” Martina told Radio Kiss Kiss.

Buffon: Serie A record man

Gianluigi Buffon will make history today with his 648th Serie A appearance, surpassing Paolo Maldini, but it’s far from the only all-time record he holds.

The 42-year-old goalkeeper recently signed a contract extension to June 2021, meaning he will be 43 years and five months old by the time it expires.

SuperGigi made his Serie A debut playing for Parma and kept a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw with Milan on November 19, 1995, when he was just 17 years, nine months and 22 days old.

Buffon: 'More fired up than ever'

Gigi Buffon maintains he is ‘more fired up than ever’ precisely because he gets fewer opportunities to play for Juventus, as he could make Coppa Italia history.

The 42-year-old goalkeeper has won five editions of this trophy, so a sixth would enable him to equal Roberto Mancini’s record.

Juve face Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome tomorrow at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

“I am playing less this season, so naturally when I do step on to the field, I am more fired up than ever,” Buffon told DAZN.
