Pavel Nedved has been appointed Juventus vice president, with the news announced following today’s annual shareholders’ meeting at Juventus Stadium.
His new role was confirmed in person by president Andrea Agnelli, who was joined by Giuseppe Marotta, Aldo Mazzia and Nedved for this afternoon’s press conference.
The president said: "Pavel has developed massively over the last five years as a board member. He’s now a skilled and knowledgeable member of staff and fully aware of all the various activities that go on inside the company. He possesses commercial perception and specific skills in the balance sheet analysis of a sporting business."
Nedved replied: "I’d like to thank the president and the club for their belief in me so I can go on working for one of the world’s top teams. My role won’t change much. I’ll still be in daily contact with the players and coach, it’s on the pitch where I can help the most. As the years have gone by I’ve been able to see how a great club is managed. I’m fired up to defend our colours."
