Nedved amazed by Juve woes

Posted on 28/03/2010


Former Juventus legend Pavel Nedved is surprised by their poor campaign. “They have the potential, they just need to know harness it.”

The Bianconeri are languishing in joint sixth place after picking up one point from three games against Siena, Sampdoria and Napoli.

“I never expected a situation like this, going out of the Champions League in the group phase, the Europa League and the Scudetto race,” he told Tuttosport.

“To think when I retired and saw the transfer campaign, I thought the team would be stronger than in previous seasons.

“They have the potential, they just need to know how to harness it productively.

“I always keep track of the squad, even though I don’t go in the stands, as I feel uncomfortable being up there.”

Some blame Juve’s inability to find a replacement for Nedved in the midfield for their current problems.

It emerges the Czech talent could’ve been on the bench as a tactician instead.

“I was offered the role of assistant to the manager, Ciro Ferrara, but I said no. It’s not true that there were offers from the Czech Federation.”
