#12-He's a Keeper!
12. Gianluigi Buffon - Italy
Date of birth: 28 January 1978
Height: 190 cm
Weight: 83 kg
Current Club: Juventus (ITA)
Boasting a searing Italian sensuality, Gianluigi Buffon was born
into a sporting family; his mother was an Italian shot put and discus
champion. The goalkeeper made his Serie A debut at the age of 17 years and
was first-choice goalkeeper at Parma for six seasons before his
world-record transfer to Juventus in 2001. It was here that he won his
first Serie A title, a habit he's become used to.
