Gianluigi Buffon wins Federation Internationale de Football Association best goalkeeper of the year award

Gianluigi Buffon wins Federation Internationale de Football Association best goalkeeper of the year award

-The 39-year old has never won the trophy in his career.

Gianluigi Buffon has announced that he would retire at the end of the season unless Juventus win the Champions League, the only title the Italian has not won so far.

If he does win the competition then he may continue as a back-up to former Arsenal man Wojciech Szczesny.

In an interview with Sky Italia, Buffon has promised to call it a day after Italy's World Cup campaign unless he and Juve can win the Champions League after three unsuccessful finals.

This year the Italian goalkeeper added another feather to his wings on Monday night when he was named FIFA Best Goalkeeper of the Year at the London Palladium theatre. "More than anything, I am a serene person in that I have no fear for the future and what could be my life".

Gold Star Widow shares her conversation with Pres
After his son Caleb passed away Erickson received visits from both Minnesota senators and a letter from former President Obama. The phone call ended with Trump repeating his invitation to the White House and advising De Alencar to take care of herself.

The only thing that could make me change my mind - victory in the Champions League. His swansong will be the World Cup finals with Italy next summer - if they can qualify by beating Sweden in next month's playoff.

"I am facing it and I will face it with the desire and enthusiasm to put myself to the test". One or two years, nothing will add to my achievements.

"At that point, to try to win the Club World Cup, maybe Szczesny could play one game and me another", suggested Buffon, who has played 633 times for Juventus and 173 matches for Italy. I think past year was outstanding for me and for the team. It's been 11 years since Buffon became world champion, but he lost 3 Champions League finals he played.

If Buffon will not be able to win the Champions League, his farewell match, most likely, will take place at the world Championships in Russian Federation.
