Pavel Nedved, the Ballon d’Or winning, long-locked, midfield maestro of the 1990s and 2000s is coming out of retirement at the age of 45.
The Czech Republic legend is currently vice-president at Juventus, the club he spent eight seasons with as a player, but will be allowed time away from his responsibilities in Turin to play for FK Skalna.
Nedved joined the Czech Republic club as a four-year-old and stayed for eight years before moving on to other academies.
He was registered with the club at the end of August and was introduced to fans to rapturous applause.
His role at Juventus remains his priority but the Serie A club have agreed to allow the club legend to make occasional appearances in his homeland.
Nedved’s son, Pavel Nedved junior, is also on Skalna’s books and so we may see the rare spectacle of father and son team-mates at some point this season.
We have no doubt whatsoever the great man can still do a job.
