VIDEO: Gianluigi Buffon becomes Serie A record appearance maker

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 206

Gianluigi Buffon has become the highest appearance maker in Serie A history. The Juventus goalkeeper has overtaken the record of former AC Milan defender Paulo Maldini.

Buffon took the field at the Allianz Stadium in place of Wojciech Szczesny and set a new league record of 648 appearances -- one more than AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini -- some 25 years after making his league debut for Parma and almost exactly 19 years after joining Juventus.

The reports come days after Buffon, 42, and fellow stalwart Giorgio Chiellini signed one-year contract extensions that will keep them both at Juve until the end of next season.

"The truth is that I'm still playing because I feel good, I'm competitive and also because I know I can get better," Buffon said during a live interview on Instagram on Thursday.
