Gianluigi Buffon’s return to Parma after 20 years away has been confirmed by the Serie A side.
The 43-year-old left Parma in 2001 for Juventus, and he remained in Turin throughout their corruption scandal and ensuing relegation, and only briefly left for a year away with Paris Saint-Germain before returning.
Buffon joined Parma as a 13-year-old youngster and made his debut at 17, confirming his emergence as one of the most talented goalkeepers in Europe.
