Juventus vice president Pavel Nedved believes the Financial Fair Play doesn’t work: ‘Has UEFA noticed it?’
Nedved was one of the guests at the Salone del Libro festival in Turin, where he spoke about the Allianz Stadium and the club’s vision for the future.
“We are proud of our stadium, we feel at home and the same goes for our fans, that’s what I think about our Stadium,” Nedved said as quoted by Calciomercato.com.
“The stadium where I liked to play the most is the Santiago Bernabeu, it’s always nice to play there.
“When you go on the pitch and look up to the stands, you feel like they are endless. It was always nice to play there,” he added.
“Same for Old Trafford, you can breathe history there. Manchester United are a club with tradition, same for Real Madrid, Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Historically, they have something more.
“Juventus won many trophies with an experienced team, somebody retired, others are doing so. Therefore we have younger players.
“Juventus always look ahead, we’ve invested in important players, the future belongs to Juventus.”
The Serie A giants failed to win a tenth Serie A title in a row last season but managed to win the Coppa Italia and the Supercup.
“We were criticised, but maybe somebody hasn’t noticed that other clubs had won nothing for ten years,” Nedved said.
“We are used to it, we live with the pressure of winning. Whoever works and plays for Juventus must be aware of it.”
When asked about the Financial Fair Play, Nedved replied: “It doesn’t work. I hope UEFA noticed it.
“The idea should be to spend what you earn, not to spend more.”
Juventus host Roma at the Allianz Stadium after the break.
It kicks off at 19.45 UK time on Sunday.
The Old Lady has collected 11 points in seven Serie A games so far this season, but had a perfect start to their Champions League campaign with back to back wins against Malmo and title-holders Chelsea.
