Former Juventus goalkeeper Rubinho has claimed Gianluigi Buffon should continue for ‘as long as he has the desire and determination to play’.
The Brazilian provided back-up in Turin between 2012 and 2016 and only appeared twice for the Bianconeri during his four years at the club.
The 37-year-old, who retired after a spell in his homeland with Avai FC in December 2018, has praised his former teammate Buffon, who has turned 42 but will continue at least until June 2021.
“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 spoke about Giorgio Chiellini, who has been creating headlines in recent weeks due to his 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.”
