Buffon explains 'natural' decision to rejoin Juve from PSG & says he has no plans to retire yet

Gianluigi Buffon says it was a "natural" decision for him to return to Juventus after just one full season at Paris Saint-Germain, due to the fact he was unable to cut the "umbilical cord" following his Allianz Stadium exit in the summer of 2018.

At the age of 40, Buffon called time on a 17-year spell with Juve and moved to Parc des Princes on a free transfer, putting pen to paper on a one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

The former Italy number one left Turin on a high having played a key role in yet another Serie A triumph, and embarked on a new challenge in France with Thomas Tuchel's PSG.
