An Interview with La Furia Ceca

Before the year ends, we have an exclusive interview with unbeaten manager Pavel Nedved, who is currently taking Juventus to newer heights. We discussed the Champions League Knockout Draw, how he felt his team performed in the first half of the season and much more. Here, Kane Brooker speaks with the coveted Czech Republic local..

KB: Kane Brooker
PN: Pavel Nedved

KB: For this year's Knockout draw, you get last year's finalists, FC Barcelona who are with a new manager, Tito Villanova. They finished second in their group, in which Schalke 04 prevailed. To add to that, they trail Spanish rivals Real Madrid in La Liga. How do you think that you will do against Messi & Co?

PN: I think that Tito is getting his ideas to the ground, so we will expect anything from Barcelona, as they are known to attack precisely. However, I believe that with the form we are playing, we can beat anyone and that includes Barcelona

KB: It's always nice to hear that the manager believes that his team will go on to the next round. But, more importantly, what do you think of the first half of the 2012-2013 season?

PN: I think that we have a very successful first half of the season. All of the parts of the team were adequately re-inforced and some of the good players left this institution, but it was for the best. With the extra players incoming from different parts of Europe, we can definitely win a treble this season.

KB: You seem very confident of your team. In the last fixture of the Serie A that you played against Fiorentina, their manager, Vincenzo Montella didn't expect you to be title contenders. Where in the table do you think Fiore will finish?

PN: I think that their manager should be wondering how their team went against us, and that signalled how good of a team we have this year and with the current depth, I do believe we can challenge on all fronts. Montella can go f*ck himself, there is a reason why he couldn't persuade Jovetic to stay, eh?
Pavel is baaaaaaaaackkkkkkkk :D
It's BACK! :D

@The Madridista: Yeah, I was ecstatic when I opened up the save :D

@James: What I said to Arvind :P

@Nick: Thanks for the support mate! I had never used him before Juve, I highly recommend him!

@Mark: Yeah, I am currently unbeaten throughout the season! When I heard Montella said that we weren't title contenders after the game, I thought he could go f*ck himself.

@Rablador: Which story were you thinking of? ;)

@Seni: Thanks, but I can't leave anything to luck :P

@Pixel: Hahaha, couldn't think of another person when I was going to cuss :P. Thanks for the support!

Nedved's View
This year's Knockout Round has been kind of harsh for Juve, but we rolled out unbeaten, which signals what kind of team we are. I do believe that we are given a harsh task expect to pass to the Quarter Finals, but I am fully confident our team will prevail. Barcelona are one of the best sides of the world, and have some amazing talent like we do. We can expect a two tough matches and entertaining as well.
Team Reaction

PN: Pavel Nedved

GB: Gigi Buffon

AP: Andrea Pirlo

GC: Giorgio Chiellini

Around 45 minutes after the draw...
PN: Okay team, huddle up. We have a tough task ahead of us. We have played amazing European football, even if it has only been the Group stages in a long time and to be frank, we'll rip Messi & Co apart. We will start in Catalunya, and I expect to draw or even win. At home, we must impress our fans and show who JUVE really is! Who is with me?

GB: FORZA JUVE! I'll do my best boss. I'll try to have the record of clean sheets of the Champions League!

AP: I will pull the strings in the midfield Pavel. Me and Chiellini will also try to hold the attack from attempting anything at our goal.

GC: I agree. FORZA JUVE!'re back :P
Tough draw in the CL but it looks like your squad is up for it :)

@Justice: Yes I am back.. *smiles in a evil way*

@Dean: Indeed, but I haven't lost a game so far and I am not planning to do so :P.

Juventus's January Transfer Window

Juventus have confirmed four new signings that will join in the summer, which one of them is the fantastic Pablo Armero. Already played three years in Italy's top league, Nedved will surely be happy with Armero's signing.

First up is Bruno Martins Indi. The Feyenoord player was not offered a contract all throughout the first half of the season and openly stated that he would move on a free transfer. After hearing this, Juventus were alerted, and after failing to persuade Douglas, who will join Sevilla during the close-season, took advantage. Rumours around the internet state that the Feyenoord defender will earn about 15-22 thousand pounds per week. With the addition of the promising player, Juventus definitely have a future player in their ranks.

Pablo Armero, is the second player who agreed to join Juventus, after Udinese wanted to get rid of the Colombian player as they transfer listed him. Being on loan at Napoli, Armero definitely was impressing Pavel Nedved, when they almost lost in the Quarter Finals of the Coppa Italia. After that performance, sources close to Juventus state that Nedved openly asked Andrea Agnelli to sign the player. When Juventus made this signing official, they stated that Armero will be earning a whopping £80,000 p/w deal which will see him earn a juicy package throughout the 4 year deal that he signed.

The former Palmeira star joined Udinese at the age of 24 and stayed there for two years, appearing 59 times, before he was loaned out this season to Napoli. Impressing this year at the Partonopei, many clubs were interested in the player an amount of before he made his move to Napoli, but Juventus were the only team that made an official bid.

The third player that will join Juventus in the summer is another Colombian, that goes by the name of David Ospina. The shot-stopper seems to have been lured by the Champions League effect, and will most likely play second-fiddle to perhaps the best goalkeeper of the game, Gigi Buffon. The current #1 at Nice and Colombia commented on his recent transfer to Juventus by saying,"It will be great to train next to stars like Pirlo and most importantly, Gigi Buffon. From my aspect, I will join a team where I want to make an impact, maybe learn a few things I've learned throughout my career. Forza Juve!"

The final player that will join in the summer is Basque and Athletic Bilbao star Fernando Llorente. The player agreed to join the 'Bianconeri' earlier in the summer and will be anxious to impress his new boss. He said,"I am happy to join Juventus where the attack is just amazing. It will be a tough road to break the partnerships there, but I believe that I can partner up with a Spanish national player striker that Nedved told me that they're signing. Forza Juve!

All of these players will now join Nedved's promising project at Juventus.
