Beckenbauer apologises to Juventus keeper Buffon: You're no pensioner

German legend Franz Beckenbauer has apologised to Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon after describing him as a "pensioner" following their defeat to Champions League opponents Bayern Munich. The honorary President of Bayern made the comments after Juventus lost 2-0 in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final.

"I apologise to Buffon if he felt offended by my words, as it was not my intention," Beckenbauer told BILD.

"However, I remain convinced of my opinion: Buffon should've been able to block the first and second goals."
