Footballers usually throw their jersey to fans at the final whistle,
but Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon stunned one supporter by
giving him his shorts after Wednesday’s Champions League draw against
Barcelona.

The 39-year-old Buffon was competing for the first time since his
emotional international retirement after Italy’s failure to qualify for
the World Cup.

Footballers usually throw their jersey to fans at the final whistle,
but Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon stunned one supporter by
giving him his shorts after Wednesday’s Champions League draw against
Barcelona.

The 39-year-old Buffon was competing for the first time since his
emotional international retirement after Italy’s failure to qualify for
the World Cup.

 
 This is only a point tonight, but it’s a good point,” Buffon later
tweeted. “It’s always a pleasure and an honour to play against
great champions, like Ivan Rakitic.”

Buffon – who earned a record 175 caps for Italy over 20 years – had
been targeting a record sixth World Cup appearance in Russia.

He announced his international retirement after the 1-0 play-off defeat
to Sweden which saw Italy miss the World Cup for the first time in 60
years.
Playing likely his final season with Juventus, Buffon has one
final ambition: to win the Champions League, after finishing runner-up
twice in the past three years.
