Gianluigi Buffon, an Italian goalkeeper who played the sport for 28 years and achieved remarkable feats for both his club and nation, has announced his retirement from football. Buffon is 45 years old and made the announcement on Wednesday.

Buffon, who won the World Cup in 2006, won 10 Serie A championships with Juventus and one Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain. He also won the World Cup in 2006.

“And that’s all there is guys! You have provided me with everything. I have provided you with everything. Buffon is quoted as saying in a statement that “we did it together.”

He suffered with injuries in his last season and finished his career with Parma, which is in the Italian second division, despite the fact that he is widely recognized as one of the best keepers of all time. He completed his career at the same club where he began it.

Buffon moved to Juventus from Parma in 2001 and spent the most of his career with the club, with the exception of a single season spent playing for Paris Saint-Germain in 2018–19, after which he moved back to Turin and then Parma in June of 2021.
