Through his official twitter account , Buffon has shared his Goodbye letter to his Friend, Andrea Pirlo.

They’ve used different words to tell you good bye and wish you many other victories: I would like to use one word gathering the whole life we lived together: Friend.

Good luck my friend. Good luck for your present and your future. Thank you tor our past lived together. Thank you for the carefree hours spent together. Thank you for the tears of joy and sadness we cried, always supporting each other.

Thank you for having taught me that sometimes in this sport people can make things, that the most think impossible, becoming real.

A friend is the most precious thing people can have, and the best thing people can be. I am sure about this first sentence and I live and hope for the second one.
