ANKARA (AA) - Italian Serie A side Juventus extended contract with Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini for another year, the club announced on Monday.

Buffon, 43, a player with the most Serie A appearances in the history of Juventus (479), has equaled Milan legend Paolo Maldini as the record holder in the history of Serie A (647).

The goalkeeper joined Juventus from Parma in 2001, making 699 appearances. He helped his team win nine Italian Serie A league titles, three Italian Cup titles, and five Italian Super Cup titles.

"Super Gigi is in fact proof that age is only a number. With today's renewal, if it is even possible, he is even more Bianconero. And we can only be happy with it!," Juventus said on the club's website.

Also, the Turin side confirmed the extension of Chiellini who is also the team’s captain.

In 16 years at Juventus, Chiellini played 509 games for his team winning eight league titles, four Italian Cups and four Italian Super Cup.

"Chiellini’s attachment to the shirt is determination and humanity, it is professionalism, passion, and leadership. It is a leadership that is testified by the captain's armband he sports on his arm," it added.
