WHY Buffon is the GOAT?

For about 15 years of his career he was always either the best keeper in the world or in the top 3. Just the longevity of his career at that super high level makes him a GOAT. He is till playing at 42 in Top 5 League.


The GOAT! Setting the all time Serie A record!


Buffon’s remarkable career longevity is an awe-inspiring story!

The iconic goalkeeper broke in the Parma first team as a teenager before joining Juve in 2001 in a £32.6million deal, making him the world’s most expensive goalkeeper at the time.

The legend displaying an incredible track record:

17 – Buffon made his Serie A debut for Parma on November 19, 1995 at the age of 17 years and 295 days. It was a 0-0 draw against Milan.

648 – Since then, Buffon has gone on to rack up 648 appearances in Italy’s top flight, including Saturday’s clash with Torino that has seen him break Maldini’s record.

42 – Buffon is the third-oldest player to feature in Serie A during the three-points era, behind only Marco Ballotta (44 years, 38 days) and Francesco Antonelli (42 years, 235 days).

23 – This is Buffon’s 23rd season in professional football. Having signed a new contract, he will play a 24th campaign in 2020-21.

247 – Giorgio Chiellini signed a new contract at the same time as Buffon. The centre-back is the player Buffon has most regularly played with in Serie A, 247 times.

480 – No one has played more Serie A games for Juventus, with Buffon’s 480 two more than Alessandro del Piero’s haul.
