'I Was A Little Bit Jealous Of Karel Poborsky' - Pavel Nedved Reveals His Love For Man United

Former Ballon D'Or winner and all-round class act Pavel Nedved has revealed what he believes to be the sole negative aspect of his career: The fact that he never played for Manchester United.

Nedved won three Scudettos with Juventus during his eight-year career with the bianconeri, also reaching the 2003 Champions League final on his way to being named the best footballer on the planet that same year.


When asked about the biggest regret of his career, however, the 44-year-old told iDNES in his native Czech Republic:

That I never played for Manchester United. I’d have liked that.

The transfer was never on the table though. There was only Chelsea.

I liked the generation of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, who I admired. I was a little bit jealous of Karel Poborsky who played in Manchester and experienced great matches. I know he still feels that love.

Pavel Nedved being jealous of Karel Poborsky is one of the funniest things we've heard all morning, but no doubt United fans would have welcomed him into their midfield following David Beckham's departure in 2003. Instead, they went and bought some kid from Portugal the next season.


Nedved retired at Juventus in 2009, having scored 65 goals in over 300 appearances.
