Pavel Nedved

Juventus Vice-President Pavel Nedved said ‘it was time to rejuvenate the squad’ at the Allianz Stadium. ‘We aim to be competitive in Italy and Europe’.

The Bianconeri brought back Massimiliano Allegri ahead of 2021-22, replacing Andrea Pirlo.

The rejuvenation process started a year before Pirlo’s arrival, with Maurizio Sarri at the helm and the club picked up their last Scudetto under the former Napoli coach.

Nedved explained ‘it was time’ to make changes at Juventus and stressed the club are building for a competitive future with young stars like Federico Chiesa and Matthijs de Ligt arriving at Continassa in recent years.

“We won for many years, and it was time to rejuvenate the squad,” Nedved said at the press conference for the presentation of ‘All or Nothing – Juventus’.

“With the right mix of experienced players like [Gianluigi] Buffon, [Giorgio Chiellini] and [Leonardo] Bonucci, and young players like Chiesa and De Ligt.

“We have tried to build the present and the future of the club, with the aim of being competitive in Italy and in Europe, to continue winning.”

But the Bianconeri are currently eighth in Serie A after a difficult start to the new campaign, sitting 14 points behind leaders Milan and Napoli after 12 games.

In Europe, however, the Old Lady has picked up four wins in four games, including a 1-0 triumph against reigning champions Chelsea in Turin.

8 thought on “Nedved: ‘It was time to rejuvenate Juventus’”
  1. Since Marotta left, the club have made a complete hash of the transfer campaigns! Nedved was an incredible player and a club legend, but as a director he’s a shambles and an embarrassment on the terraces with his tantrums! In many ways, he’s a symbol of the chaos going on behind the scenes at Board level! Don’t get me started on Agnelli!

  2. “Nedved explained ‘it was time’ to make changes at Juventus” – how about starting with Nedved?

    It`s about time Nedved admits his incompetence and steps down. The only steps he made right were while diving for Piemonte Calcio.

  3. Sad to say but really now everyone can see what a job did Marotta. I am sure he would never buy Woodsevski in pandemic NOT on loan but for 44m.

  4. I agree, Nedved is a big part of the problem. What right minded individual would listen to the opinion of someone who still sports a mullet!

  5. I don’t think he warrants this kind of criticism…….I mean if Juve did a summer mercato that included Dodo, Mvilla, Osvaldo and Medel then yeah I would be the first to call for that person to be fired but let’s face it, if you do that kind of Mercato somewhere else you still have a job !

    Now the question remains this: if you don’t get fired for doing a summer mercato that included Dodo, Mvilla, Osvaldo and Medel then what exactly do you have to do in order to get fired ??
