Gianluigi Buffon was left crestfallen on Saturday after missing out on a Champions League winner’s medal yet again.
Juventus were beaten 4-1 by Real Madrid at Cardiff as Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace to secure his fourth triumph in the competition out of five finals.
Meanwhile, the iconic Italian goalkeeper missed out on hoisting that trophy for a third time after falling at the final hurdle with the Serie A outfit in 2003 as well as 2015.
It’s almost unfair that a model professional and distinguished character like Buffon continues to see the Champions League missing from his exemplary record.
However, he definitely finds himself in good company with several world-class players failing to capture European club football’s greatest prize.
From Diego Maradona to Ronaldo (the Brazilian), the gallery above features 20 players who have never won the Champions League.
Did any of the names in the list surprise you?
