“We are honored and delighted to announce that Buffon has renewed with Parma until 2024. Gigi is an example every day,” announced the company’s president, Kyle Krause, at a press conference at the Tardini stadium on Monday.

For his part, Buffón declared: “This is a good day. What I wanted has happened, what the president, the fans and the whole city wanted”.

Despite the fact that his possible retirement has been speculated for a long time, Buffon, who has just turned 44, denied that he wants to finish his career. He is the player with the most appearances in the history of Serie A (657) and the Italian national team (176), ten times champion of Italy, once champion of France and owner of the record for minutes without conceding goals in Calcio ( 973).

Buffon left Juventus last year to return to Parma, the club where he began his glorious career. Although his twenty-seventh season as a professional is not going in the best way for Parma, which is closer to relegation to Serie C than direct promotion to Serie A.

His legendary career began on November 19, 1995, at the age of 17, as Parma goalkeeper.
