Juventus director Pavel Nedved has praised new signing Milos Krasic saying that the Serb is destined for big things with the Bianconeri. Krasic who has been continually compared to the former midfielder got approval from his protege with Nedved only stopping short of paying glowing tribute to Krasic.
“I used to be noticed because I was blonde, and now there is another one – Krasic, who I really like,”
“He was a right buy for us and I hope he goes on to achieve lots like I did.”
Nedved furhter revealed that Jose Mourinho offered him the opportunity to play for Inter in 2009 but he just could not picture himself wearing another jersey other than that of Juventus.
“[Jose Mourinho] asked me to go to Inter in 2009, this made me happy as he is great, but in the end I couldn’t see myself in another shirt, and so I remained at Juventus.”
Meanwhile, injured goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has also been impressed by his sides start to the season.
“I like this Juve side. It is compact and it is still growing,”
“The win against Catania was the perfect response to our Europa League exit.
“As for the Scudetto? For the moment, we are not speaking about it.”
Its still not clear when Buffon is expected back in the squad however, the 32 year old says that he is learning a lot of things about his body that he never knew.
“I am working hard, and feel good,”
” After many years, one learns – and gets to know – more about their body and the things one can do.”
