Gianluigi Buffon, 32, won the World Cup back in 2006 with his Italy. And right now he and the rest of the Italian team are preparing for 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Gianluigi is according to many one of the world's best and most successful goalkeepers ever. Even though Gianluigi probably is super busy with his football career, he still seems to have some spare time for other interests as well as he just signed with PokerStars and now will represent them (together with the rest of the team - Mats Sundin, Boris Becker, Orel Hershiser etc) in major poker tournaments around the globe.
"I want to accomplish a lot in life. And even though this contract means that I will have a very busy schedule, I still want to do it because I love to play poker. And to get the chance to play for the world's biggest poker site is both an honor and a challenge. I'm looking forward to play against the rest of Team PokerStars." says Gianluigi in an interview.
