Often made fun of by “European clowns”, Angel Di Maria offers 6 qualities that can make Juventus win the Champions League

There is some truth to this term. In the modern era of football, players who play at the highest level can sometimes play until they reach the age of four. Gianluigi Buffon, for example. Cristiano Ronaldo may also be at a similar point.

At Real Madrid, there are Karim Benzema and Luka Modric, who are in the twilight of their careers looking more and more brilliant. If Modric had won the Ballon d’Or at the age of three, this year the award also looks set to go to Benzema, under the same conditions.

Likewise with di Maria who is now 34 years old. Seeing his relatively stable and consistent appearance, it was not a difficult matter for him to continue to be at the highest level with Juventus.

“For various reasons, firstly, footballers are now relative, careers have become longer,” said Madrid and Spain legend Iker Casillas.

“Without looking at my friend Gigi Buffon who is 44 years old, today we have no shortage of examples of players over 30 who are playing very well and performing at a high level,” continued Casillas.

“Just look at Karim Benzema and Luka Modric, staying at Real Madrid,” he explained.
