Buffon Considers Leaving Italy National Team After  Euro 2024 Exit

Legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is considering leaving his role with the Italy national team after their exit from Euro 2024.

As a veteran who played for the Azzurri for 21 years, Buffon was brought into the coaching group by Luciano Spalletti and has served as the delegation chief of the team thus far.

He has been assisting Spalletti as part of his backroom staff, but Buffon is understandably dissatisfied with how Italy’s Euro 2024 campaign unfolded.

Italy’s performance was underwhelming as they aimed to defend the title they won in 2021.

He wants to understand the federation’s plans for the team’s development before deciding whether the project is compelling enough for him to continue his involvement.

Italy surrendered three European Championship title after losing 2-0 to Switzerland in the round of 16.

They barely managed to reach the knockout stage thanks to a stoppage time equalizer to force a 1-1 draw with Croatia.
