Rubinho urges Juventus keeper Buffon to continue playing

Former Juventus goalkeeper Rubinho has urged Gigi Buffon to continue playing.

Buffon, now 42, will play on next season.

“I expect everything from him," Rubinho told Domenica Sport. “As long as he has the desire and determination to play, he must do it.

“I was really happy when he decided to go to PSG, because he once again showed his great talent from another place."

Rubinho also discussed Giorgio Chiellini and his new autobiography.

“His book has not yet arrived in Brazil. I admire him, he's a very correct person, who I would like to have by my side all my life.

“If you manage to have the respect of Giorgio Chiellini, that's a big thing. We are talking about a Man with a capital M."
