Holder in Parma at the age of 44, Gianluigi Buffon made a big dumpling on the lawns of Perugia in Serie B this weekend. The former PSG goalkeeper completely missed a pass to a teammate and hastened his team’s defeat.
Bad weekend for Gianluigi Buffon. Parma’s goal holder, the 44-year-old goalkeeper, made an unbelievable mistake on the Perugia lawn during the 36th day of Serie B (2-1). Back on serve by a teammate, the former PSG goalkeeper completely missed his control and his handover, which allowed the opposing striker, Marco Oliveri, to quietly score his team’s second goal. Leading 2–0 after only seven minutes, Gialloblu reacted too late with a goal from hopeful Franco Vazquez, who could not survive his team’s 11th loss of the season.
No promotion for Serie A
Currently 13th in Serie B after 36 games, Parma is 19 points off the podium and will not return to Serie A after a year of relegation. Amid the game’s disappointment, a legal dispute with the production company Warner Bros. Entertainment will cost the club an additional 15,000 euros. Presented by Parma as a superhero, Gianluigi Buffon was presented with a Superman costume in scenes to announce his return.
The problem is that the Transalpine Club did not ask Warner for permission to use his property. This check avoids an even more expensive lawsuit for illegal use of intellectual property rights. So Parma and Warner have reached an agreement to settle the matter.
