Since making his professional debut back in 1995, surely even Gianluigi Buffon couldn't have imagined the extraordinary career that he would go on to have.
A World Cup winner with countless accolades to his name, both personal and as part of a team, Buffon has long been a symbol of Juventus since his arrival at the club in 2001 when he became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper at the time.
Not many players can still claim to be at the top of their game at the age of 40, but from this day the Bianconeri's Superman is doing just that! A sensational shot stopper, inspirational leader, habitual record breaker and natural-born winner. Gigi ticks all the boxes.
Everyone at Juventus Football Club wishes Buffon the happiest of returns on his special day.
Happy Birthday, Gigi!
