Time.news – Full speed ahead without doubts and with clear ideas. Pavel Nedved assures that there will be no revolution at Juventus, or that in any case two figures of great importance such as Andrea Pirlo and Cristiano Ronaldo will not be touched.
That is the two that more than the others have been questioned, outside the Juventus environment, after the elimination in the Champions League, but also for the delay of 10 points against Inter.
The vice president of the Juventus club, in an interview with Pierluigi Pardo for Dazn, talks about the future of the Lady, of some of the key men of the team, but also takes a look at the past.
The most important issue of the moment, however, concerns Andrea Pirlo, in his first season ever as a manager and struggling with a difficult season as evidenced by the elimination in the round of 16 of the Champions League against Porto and the -10 against Inter in the league.
The confirmation of the Master
“Pirlo is and will be the Juventus coach, 100%. We married a project with Andrea, knowing that there would be difficulties. We wanted to do something more but we didn’t succeed, the difficulties were foreseen “, assures Pavel Nedved as vice president of the Juventus club.
“We are very calm, on the path we wanted and we keep this path. He has everything to become a great coach”, adds the former Ballon d’Or who, having dismissed the Pirlo argument, also blinds Cristiano Ronaldo, effectively denying the rumors that come from Spain regarding a possible return of the Portuguese champion to Real Madrid.
“Ronaldo for me does not touch, he has a contract until June 30, 2022 and will remain. What happens next will be seen – explains Nedved -. Cristiano Ronaldo, both technically and in terms of image, gave us an impetus towards the Olympus of football. On his technical level, nothing can be said: he scored more than 100 goals in 120 games and, moreover, he dragged us into the Champions League. He is a very simple guy, although from the outside he may not look like that. He is the prototype of a modern player who, with immense talent and a lot of work, has achieved incredible goals. “
The future of Joya
From CR7 to Paolo Dybala, Juve’s great absentee this season due to many injuries without forgetting the stop for Covid. “We missed him. I think he didn’t play more than 800 minutes with us this year: there are very few. His presence would guarantee us offensive variants and goals that we have obviously missed so far,” says Nedved.
The Argentine’s future is yet to be written and Nedved admits that anything is possible. “He has a contract for another year and I have nothing else to add to what the director Paratici and the president Agnelli have already said. But it is clear that at Juventus we evaluate every market opportunity“, says the Juventus vice president.
Closed the topics related to the present and the future, a jump back to talk about the more or less recent past, starting with last year’s coach Maurizio Sarri.
“He is a great professional and a great coach. The feeling was good, there were no conditions to continue working together. But, even here, everything was shared”, says Nedved who then talks about Massimiliano Allegri on Sunday evening protagonist in the Sky Sport studios after a long silence.
“I was pleased with Max’s words – the words of the Juventus manager in the interview given to Dazn -. He lived wonderful years with us, we shared joys above all, he made Juve history. I believe that our separation it came naturally and for this there is no repentance “.
The rivalry with Conte’s Inter
There is also room for today’s ‘enemies’, for a couple who have given so much to Juventus and who are now making their rival fly. We talk about Antonio Conte and Beppe Marotta and their Inter who looks down on everyone in the league.
“The rivalry is there and it is always there but it must remain so, in friendship. I have no message for Antonio. Conte was taken by Inter to win and he knows how to do it – underlines Nedved -. Now he is ten points ahead and he has an obligation to win, he knows it too. If he is building as he did at Juve? It could be, also because he is with Marotta and I know how the two of them work together. him. Marotta was a great teacher for all of us. We are happy for them “.
