Gianluigi Buffon on potential retirement: “It is good to think month by month”

Juventus legend and current Parma goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed that he is currently operating on a month-to-month basis, when it comes to a potential retirement.

The Italian is now 45 but he remains a regular for Parma in Serie B. In the Coppa Italia recently, the goalkeeper made some impressive saves for his side in the Round of 16 clash against Inter and that is a far reflection of how things continue to be.

Buffon spoke to La Stampa and he gave his views about a range of issues in his career, Juventus and Italian football in general. About his potential retirement, the Italian said:

“In the meantime, let’s see how we finish this year. I can draw an indication, at my age, and I’m optimistic, it’s good to think month by month.”  

The goalkeeper was also asked about the situation surrounding Juventus, following their 15-point deduction recently. He believes that it is now a case of anti-power going against the power of Juventus, who have dominated the league for a while now.

He stated: “I’m waiting for the judicial procedures to be completed. But in the case of a second harsh conviction in the space of seventeen years, considering that Juve is portrayed as the power because it is winning, I could not help but ask myself a question.

“Is it the masochistic power that is self-flagellating and or is it the anti-power that wants to beat the power?”

Parma are currently eighth in Serie B but they are only one point away from 6th placed Cagliari.
