Gianluigi Buffon, Juventus goalkeeper has stated that the fire within him is always burning. It’s like he relives his childhood.
Recently, for another year Buffon has renewed his deal and on Saturday in the Derby Della Mole as Juve meets Torino he is expected to become the record holder of Serie A presence.
On Instagram, the 41-year-old said to Randstad Italia (via Football Italia), “I still have the fire burning inside me.”
“I continue to play because I feel good and I’m competitive, and I always want to improve.”
“The moment I was a No 1, the passion became work, a commitment not to look bad and to stay at the peak.”
“I set the fun aside for 15 years. It’s as if I’m reviving my childhood now as an ‘oldie.’ It is my key about how I will move on.”
“I’ve celebrated small wins over the last 12 years of my life, and learned a lot about the losses.”
“It seems easy when you’re used to winning. The wins have a small effect on you in that way but the pain of failing persists.”
“With this, I have to seek to make peace, or I risk never leaving.”
