Nedved: 'Ronaldo and Messi are the best'

Pavel Nedved can’t wait for Juventus to face Barcelona in the Champions League with Dynamo Kiev and Ferencvaros. ‘Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi are the best in the world.’

The Bianconeri are in Group G with Barcelona, Dynamo Kiev and Ferencvaros.

“It’ll be a huge clash with Barcelona and a fascinating encounter, because it allows what in my view are still today the two best players in the world – Ronaldo and Messi – to face off against each other,” vice-president Nedved told the club website.

“Along with that, we are also seeing Miralem Pjanic and Arthur meeting, so that is another match within the match.”

It’s not just about the top seeds, as they will also be tested in Ukraine and Hungary.

“Dynamo Kiev are a very solid team with an experienced coach like Mircea Lucescu, who made history at Shakhtar Donetsk. If our fixture in Ukraine were to be in the winter, that would make it even more difficult,” continued Nedved.

“The Hungarians are something of an unknown quantity, not the usual opponents we see in the Champions League. Knowing Hungarian football, they will no doubt have a great deal of talent.

“We must keep our eyes out and be fully concentrated in every single game. It’s the Champions League, which means any team can cause problems.”
