Nedved To Retire


Juventus's Pavel Nedved has announced that he will retire at the end of the season.

The 36 year old was the former Ballon d'Or winner in 2003 but says that he realizes its time to make way for the younger players.

He said, "I'm still enjoying playing but considering my physical and mental condition I understand that the time has come to make way for younger players, they deserve to play."

Nedved has signed 1 year deals for the past 2 seasons but it doesn't look like he'll go back on his word to retire.

Nedved is one of the game's best ever players, a true legend. I'd even go as far as to say I would rather have had him in my team than his predecessor at Juventus, the great Zinedine Zidane.

Too far?

Hey Charlie thanks for stopping by....

Not sure if I personally would take him over Zidane but I can see why someone would...

However I do think he will remain retired this time around...
