Juventus goalkeeper and World Cup winner Gianluigi Buffon has claimed that neither he nor his teammates can understand how Manchester United allowed a talent such as Paul Pogba to leave on a free transfer and claimed that United were blind to part ways with the Frenchman.

Who Is The Best Goalkeeper In Europe?

Soccer Tickets Online at related • 1 view

That is a question I have been thinking about since research some stats on Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic earlier this week.

The most common measurements used to compare goalkeepers are number of clean sheets and number of goal conceded.

If you look at the top four leagues in Europe combined (Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga and Premier League) this is how the top goalkeepers stack up against each other

Most Clean Sheets

  • Morgan De Sanctis (Roma) – 9
  • Víctor Valdés (Barcelona) 7
  • Hugo Lloris (Spurs) – 7
  • Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus) – 6
  • Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) – 6
  • Artur Boruc (Southampton) – 6
  • Tim Howard (Everton) – 6
  • Jussi Jaaskelainen (West Ham) – 6

The one surprise name on the list is Jaaskelainen as West Ham are the team not in the top half of the table.
