||[May. 14th, 2008|12:33 pm]
Another contract saga has ended at Juventus with official news Pavel Nedved has signed on until 2009.
“My decision was based on the seven extraordinary years here and my desire to again experience a European campaign with a team I am deeply tied to,” said the 2003 Ballon d’Or winner.
There were fears the Czech legend would be leaving Turin at the end of this season after renegotiations hit several stumbling blocks.
He would have been a free agent in the summer with interest from Japan or even possible retirement, but he put pen to paper on a new contract tying him to Juve until June 20, 2009.
However, this evening general manager Jean Claude Blanc made the announcement at the end of the training session.
“This is the best way to begin our plan to strengthen the squad next season,” said Blanc.
