Gianluigi Buffon certainly has an illustrious career to talk about. At 39-years-old and with 20 years of experience at the highest level, he is one of the game’s most respectable figure.

“I really hate strikers.”, Buffon said in a recent interview with Copa 90. “I’d say the best I’ve played against are Ronaldo, the Brazilian one, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. These are the three who… and Zidane. Let’s add Zidane. These are the four who would start any team.”
Buffon will look to return to winning ways with Juventus after they lost to Lazio last weekend and will be hoping to play another World Cup with Italy if they can maks it past the play-off against Sweden.
