Italy and Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon was presented with a specially made captain’s armband to commemorate his 500th Serie A appearance against Livorno, putting him 3rd behind Javier Zanetti and Francesco Totti in terms of players currently plying their trade in Italy’s top tier, and 12th overall in historical rankings.

Speak to Gazzetta Dello Sport Buffon gave no indication that he intends to hang up his gloves anytime soon, adding that he hoped there was time left for a few more trophies. In circumstances befitting the occasion ‘Gigi’ kept a clean sheet, his 5th on the bounce.

A sensational achievement I’m sure you’ll agree.
