Goodbye! Legend Buffon Ends Juventus Career With Victory [PHOTOS]

Gianluigi Buffon ended his 17-year Juventus career as they crowned a seventh straight Italian title with a 2-1 win over relegated Verona.
The 40-year-old keeper was substituted just after the hour, and was in tears as he embraced his team-mates while the crowd gave him a standing ovation.
He did a lap of honour while the match continued in Turin, accepting gifts and congratulations from fans.
Daniele Rugani and Miralem Pjanic scored for Juve in a comfortable win.
Alessio Cerci pulled a goal back after Buffon had been replaced by Carlo Pinsoglio, but Verona rarely threatened to ruin the send-off at the Allianz Stadium.
