"On Saturday I will play a game and that is the only certainty I have". I make this decision in a calm and happy state of mind, which is not to be taken for granted for a sportsperson.

"I'm convinced that Juventus needs to plan for the future and, as someone who has spent many years as a player and several as club captain, I am the first to understand that".

"Saturday will be my last game for Juventus and I think it will be the best way to end this fantastic adventure". It sounded appealing. But deep down I feel very Italian. "I think that the national team already has some great young players who need to be given a chance". Is this the best Bianconeri side of all time? "These feelings are thanks to an awesome path I've been lucky enough to share with many people who really liked me, and I felt this day after day, and for this I fought and tried to do my best. Until the end, despite being 40, I performed above my standards". He announced his retirement from the national team in November when Italy lost a World Cup playoff to Sweden but recently returned for friendlies.

That was his 176th cap for Italy - a national record - since his debut against Russian Federation in October 1997.

United will have the chance to give their captain the ideal sending off when they take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 19. That will evolve and when he wants my opinion I'm there to give it'. "I'm sure that will be the case again".

Buffon said Oliver had "a rubbish bin for a heart" after awarding a controversial late penalty in Juventus' Champions League semi-final defeat to Real Madrid.

"Not to mention that in the Champions League, at the Bernabeu, he put in a fantastic performance. That was unthinkable back then, even for me".

'The only problem is that my life has been organised for me for 23 years. I always had a sporting and correct conduct with everybody. It is a very emotional day for me, and I am here off the back of an extraordinary and wonderful journey, shared with people who have cared about me greatly.

"I am proud to have received many proposals for the future, but it is in my character to launch myself into the next challenge with the utmost dedication".

Buffon joined Juve in 2001 after six top-flight seasons at Parma, where he won an Italian Cup and a UEFA Cup.
