Gianluigi Buffon has officially returned to Parma, the team he left in 2001 for Juventus.

The veteran goalkeeper made the decision to leave Juventus at the end of the 2020/21 season after making 509 appearances for the Bianconeri.

Speculation mounted over a possible retirement for the 43-year-old, but a return to Parma seemed more likely. Now the club has announced the signing with a video on their official Twitter account.

The dramatic video features Buffon entering the Stadio Ennio Tardini in the cover of night and unearthing a chest that contains team photos from his previous spell at the club, as well as his old shirt.
