Try to find a better example to the notion that some things get better with age than the performances of Gianluigi Buffon.
The legendary goalkeeper has been excellent between the sticks all season, setting a new Serie A record for minutes without conceding (973) between January and March, but Juve’s Number One was in no mood to stop matters there.
The 38-year-old has been in electric form again this April, making a host of heart-stopping, match-winning saves, all of which are showcased in the video below:
On the back of a brilliant month in the black and white, which culminated in the team clinching an historic fifth successive Scudetto title (Buffon’s ninth so far of an illustrious career), Bianconeri fans have voted the inspirational club captain the MVP for April - an award he will receive at Juventus Stadium shortly before Sunday afternoon’s meeting with Carpi kicks off.
Then, as soon as the whistle goes, he'll have his eyes on extending the run of games without conceding at home to ten matches. And seeing the unbelievable form Gigi is in, no one would put such an impressive achievement past him.
The opportunity to hand over Buffon’s prize will fall to one lucky J-Member, who certainly won’t be forgetting the experience in a hurry.
You too can be in with a chance of doing the honours next month by becoming a Juventus Member.
