Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has no immediate plans to retire and said it would be a waste to quit now when he feels he is still in top form.
“A player stops when he feels that he is no longer what he was before on the pitch,” Buffon, 37, told reporters after Juventus beat Monaco 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday.
“Looking at it objectively, that is not my case. I will continue to keep playing as long as I am doing well, otherwise it would be a waste. Why bid farewell to football if you are playing well?”
