Juventus and Italy captain Gianluigi Buffon explained at an event in Serralunga d´Alba that “as long as I want to suffer, to fight, I’ll continue”.

“Motivation is everything.”

“As long as I want to suffer, to fight, I’ll continue. After the passion that motivated me in my first years, I set myself the goal of having a challenge, to always fight for a bigger objective.

“I’ll need to see – together with the club – what energy level I’ll have and whether I can continue or not.

“What makes me happy is the fact that, whatever my future will be, I feel very serene and gratified for what my career has been, and for what I think I’ve given to Juventus, Parma, the national team and all of football.

“I know I have always worked with extreme seriousness and unselfishness, putting the good of the group ahead of my own.”
