Gianluigi Buffon is a Juventus and goalkeeping legend, the 40-year-old has defied all odds to become a name synonymous with shot stopping, however with the curtain set to come down on his career at the end of the season Buffon is certainly making the remainder of his days on the field memorable - and not necessarily in a good way. 

The Italian has been guilty of attempting to do more than he is capable of and his error in Juventus's Coppa Italia match against Atalanta sent Twitter alight.
