Juventus have appointed Pavel Nedved as the club’s new vice-President.
The former midfielder was on the board of directors in Turin, having retired from playing for the club in 2009.
A brief statement on the club’s official Twitter page announced that Nedved has been nominated by the board as the new vice-President.
Nicknamed ‘The Czech Fury’, Nedved spent eight years as a player in Turin, winning four Scudetti and being awarded the Ballon d’Or in 2003.
He further endeared himself to the Bianconeri faithful after the Calciopoli scandal in 2006, remaining with the club in Serie B and scoring 11 goals as the Old Lady secured promotion.
