Instagram: Sami Khedira teases Gianluigi Buffon after spectacular crossbar fail

Germany and Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira has sent Gianluigi Buffon a message on Instagram, warning the veteran to look after himself better.

Italy secured an important 2-0 win over Belgium in their opening Euro 2016 game on Monday night, and the players certainly enjoyed their victory after the full-time whistle.

From players celebrating in front of the supporters behind the goal at one end, to the entire team huddling up and sharing a few inspirational words, it all seemed to be going to plan for Buffon, until he decided to run the length of the pitch and try to swing off the crossbar.

Unfortunately for the legend, his hands slipped and he fell on his back. It didn’t seem to bother him too much though, as he got back up and continued with his celebrations.

Khedira, who joined Juventus last year, had a few words for the 38-year-old, insisting that he wants him to look after himself with many more years of success hopefully awaiting them in Turin.

The Italian shot-stopper can’t be criticised for enjoying what is likely going to be his last European Championship, but if there is a lesson to be learned here, just take it easy, Gigi.

Be careful, Gigi! We need you a few more years! ?? @gianluigibuffon #Juve #legend #BELITA #Euro2016
