Gianluigi Buffon admits he is “99.9 percent” certain that he will retire from professional football after the 2018 World Cup.
“Retiring after Russia 2018? Yes, this’ll happen 99.9 percent,” the veteran goalie told Sky Sport Italia.
“I’ll have one more intense and busy season with important appointments. After that, it’ll be time to say enough is enough.”
“Together with Andrea Agnelli (Juve’s president), we’ve left one possibility open: if we were to win the Champions League, I’d play for another season and try to win the Club World Club and other trophies.”
