Pavel Nedved, vice-president of Juventus, is confident striker Dusan Vlajovic has a long career ahead of him.

         The Serbia international has score four goals in seven ufabet games since joining the club in the winter for €70 million. And his comeback against Juventus has drawn comparisons with C. Cristiano Ronaldo, former striker of the team

         Nedved understands this analogy. And expressed confidence that Vlajovic will have a great path in football for sure.

         “To be honest, Vlahovic surprised me too. There are some comparisons with some top players, Cristiano Ronaldo,” Nedved said. “I know he is a very good player. But he was born in 2000 and if he continues with this idea He can do great things.”

         “I am sure he has a good future. He’s a very smart person. Know how to prepare for the game. He’s very humble and that’s very important for a player to be a champion. He’s really on the right track.”

         “It’s great to see these young players eagerly and humbled to ask for your advice. You feel very helpful.”

Max Allegri said Juventus are not in the Scudetto race. Despite closing to within seven points of leaders Napoli and Milan. Does Nedved agree?

Does Nedved agree

“I would’ve said after our Torino and Atalanta results that it was impossible. Now they have slowed down up there and we have got closer.

“I still say our objective is the top four. I don’t think we’re in the Scudetto race yet and it’s going to be very difficult. Almost impossible, to recover from the start we had.”

Marley Ake gets a start this evening amid the injury crisis, as Juventus plunder their Under-23 side. Which plays in Serie C.

“We believe in this Under-23 project and are frankly surprised the other clubs in Italy haven’t followed. It’s almost impossible to leap straight from the Primavera youth team to the senior squad. But this step of the Under-23 side is so important and ensures they are ready.”
