Posted by Fraser Cairns on

Tonight, Buffon has the chance to win the Champions League for the first time in his glittering career but at the third time of asking. At 39, it is likely he is nearing the end of his career at top of the game. We have recently seen the retirement of one club man and fellow Italian Totti and it wouldn’t be daft to suggest that Buffon won’t be too far behind.
