Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon reaffirms retirement plans

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon reaffirms retirement plans”

GIANLUIGI BUFFON is set to retire from football at the end of the season.

For some reason, no one felt it necessary to include one of the best goalkeepers of the Premier League.

Hugo Lloris, Jan Oblak, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Alisson picked up votes.

Men's Coach nominees are Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid), who led his club to winning the Champions League, La Liga and the FIFA Club World Cup, as well as Antonio Conte (Chelsea) and Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus).

The 39-year-old confirmed he is still at the top of his profession by picking up the award for The Best FIFA Goalkeeper at a ceremony in London on Monday evening, but the only honour he is lacking to crown his career is victory in the Champions League.

"In that case, I think (Wojciech) Szczesny and I could split time. but with a goalkeeper like him behind me, I think it's normal that I'll be stepping aside next year". A teary-eyed Buffon while accepting the prestigious award and gave an emotional speech and said he feels great to receive such an honour at his age.

"They have made it possible for me to win this award and I would like to thank all those who voted for me. But it wasn't enough to win in Europe". Keylor Navas and Thibaut Courtois got about 10% each.

It was because De Gea did not appear on the list at all.

Is David De Gea the world's best goalkeeper?

De Gea, as he has demonstrated throughout 2017, is unquestionably one of the best - if not *the* best - goalkeeper in the world right now. Have your say by leaving a comment below.
