Juve great Buffon afraid of retirement

Gianluigi Buffon will leave Juventus at the end of the season, the goalkeeper confirms

"To end this journey with two trophies - and with Andrea [Agnelli] and the entire Bianconeri world by my side - will be very special".

However, while he had been expected to announce his decision to retire from football altogether (and he may yet stil decide to do so), Buffon claims that he has offers to extend his playing career elsewhere next season.

Juve was dramatically knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in the quarter-finals, though Buffon celebrated Serie A and Coppa Italia glory last week - his seventh successive Scudetto and fourth consecutive Italian cup triumph.

Italy's most capped player with 176 appearances, Buffon also confirmed he would not play again for the Azzurri, ruling out an expected worldwide farewell on June 4 in a friendly against the Netherlands. "Then I will have a continuous dialogue with the President and he is aware of what's going on around me". I'm happy playing, because I love the atmosphere - I'm with my friends and I know I can help on the pitch.

Buffon joined in 2001 from Parma and is Italy's most capped player with 176 caps. Now there are some interesting proposals. I'm having continual discussion with Andrea, who knows what is happening around me and is an advisor I don't want to lose. Wojciech Szczesny will become Juve's first-choice goalkeeper from next season.

What non muslims need to know about Ramadan
Fasting during Ramadan is mandated among physically and mentally sane Muslims in fulfillment of one of the five pillars of Islam. Initially most of the Muslim majority countries followed the dates set for Ramadan by Saudi Arabia Authorities.

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, he said: "Fifteen days ago, I was already an ex-player". I see you how many other still see you: a legend.

"Up until 15 days ago, it was certain and well-known that I would stop playing", continued the 40-year-old. "I am a competitive animal and I wouldn't be able to live or feel at ease in that situation", he said.

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

Buffon was also Italy captain until he retired from the national team in November when the Azzurri lost a World Cup playoff to Sweden.

Offer Klopp might be interested in Buffon, as he will have another chance to win the Champions League, which he never surrendered. They allowed me to take another step forward. I always tried to do my best'. I wish for him to enjoy Saturday at Allianz Stadium.
