A leading Italian soccer player is facing a possible ban after allegedly blaspheming last month.
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is alleged to have used a blasphemous expression when speaking to a teammate during a match against Parma on Dec. 19.
The 42-year-old is alleged to have used profanity which compares God to an animal.
Buffon, recently voted the best goalkeeper of all time in a poll of his peers, holds the record for most appearances as captain of the Italian national team.
