PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon admits he does not want to retire just yet, and hints he may go on for another decade.
The legendary Italian stopper left Juventus in the summer after spending 17 years in Turin to sign for the French champions on a one-year-contract.
The 40-year-old has so far been used in a rotational role with promising Frenchman Alphonse Areola and kept a clean sheet on his debut for the club as they beat Caen 3-0 at home.
Despite his age, the 2006 World Cup winner is convinced he can still play at the top level for years to come.
“In the last few years I have learned that it would be a mistake to set a limit … I thought I would stop at 35,” said Buffon.
“Afterwards, some circumstances made me go on.” I said: “I’m only 38 years old, but at 38 I thought 40 ‘Today I’m still here “.
“I’m sure that the emotions and the life I’ve had, even in the dressing room, are not something I can find elsewhere. I’m not sure that a normal player would have lived this life the way I have.
“You have to accept that life has several phases, and you must never be surprised. So I know that one day it’ll happen, and I won’t be taken by surprise.
“But I also know that everything will be completely different.”
