Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois hopes to emulate Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and keep playing until the age of 39.
“To see Buffon playing to such a level at this age is great. I’m 25 and he is 14 years older than me,” Courtois told Evening Standard.
“Obviously if I can still play at the level he is in 14 years’ time, I will be very satisfied.
“Obviously I hope nothing happens – injuries can always change the future. But I love football, I enjoy being on the training pitch, in the stadium.
“I guess I will still feel the same in 10 to 15 years’ time and I hope in that moment I can still produce and be at this level.”
