Nedved: Del Piero is the history of Juventus


Former prominent black and white midfielder Pavel Nedved has expressed his admiration for the Juventus captain, adding that the club from Turin will need many years to have a symbol of Del Piero’s caliber again. Czech Pavel Nedved has taken the time to glorify Del Piero, describing the veteran striker as a key figure in Juventus history.
The 37-year-old found the net in his 700th official appearance with the “Old Lady”, as he sealed his 2-1 victory in Serie A, against Lazio, on Wednesday. Nedved admitted that he has to dig a lot to find the superlative words, with which to portray Del Piero, his importance to Juventus. “It’s hard to find words to describe Del Pieron. He has been playing at high levels for Juventus for 20 years. “Del Piero is the history of this club,” Nedved was quoted as saying by UEFA’s official website. – When someone in the world says the word “Juventus”, they have a picture of Del Piero in mind. It has been a great fortune for me to play alongside him. He is a great champion, he has always trained with dedication, otherwise he would never have achieved so much, despite his great talent. “As I said, he is the story of Juventus.”
Del Piero has scored two goals in 19 appearances for Juventus in the current Serie A season.
