Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon says he has one final chance to win the Champions League next season following Saturday’s disappointment in Cardiff.
The Serie A champions were beaten 4-1 by Real Madrid, as goals from Casemiro, Marco Asensio and a Cristiano Ronaldo double saw Zinedine Zidane’s side become the first team to retain the trophy in the competition’s modern format.
Buffon has now tasted defeat in three finals with Juve – in 2003, 2015 and 2017 – and he has yet to get his hands on European club football’s biggest prize in his storied career.
“I still have one more year on my contract, so that means I have one more chance of winning the Champions League.” the 39 year old told Sky Sport Italia.
The 2006 World Cup winner signed a two-year deal with Juve in May 2016, which is expected to be his last contract before retirement.
