Football Fans All Over the World Are Absolutely Heartbroken For Gigi Buffon

Gigi Buffon‘s career at Champions League level came to a shuddering halt at the Bernabeu tonight, with his last moments in the competition leaving football fans all over the globe absolutely gutted.

With retirement looming in the summer, the legendary 40-year-old keeper was between the sticks as usual for Juventus in their Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Having lost the first-leg 3-0 at home, any notion of a comeback seemed laughable before kick-off, but a brace from Mario Mandzukic and a poacher’s finish from Blaise Matuidi levelled the aggregate score at 3-3 – and left Real’s superstars absolutely terrified.

But with the tie seemingly heading to a tense period of extra-time, controversy struck, and Los Blancos were awarded a penalty in injury time – prompting Buffon to completely lose his rag, and angrily confront English referee Michael Oliver.

Buffon was quickly shown a red card, meaning his final moments in the Champions League were in disgrace, and supporters of all different clubs are struggling not to feel sorry for him:

 

As you’d expect, Ronaldo coolly slotted away the resulting spot-kick, but do you feel sorry for Buffon?

Did he really deserve to be sent off?

What do you think?
