Pavel Nedved: I Don’t Want To Be Considered A Traitor By Juventus Fans

The Czech midfielder admits he is tempted by Inter’s offer, but fears he will branded a traitor by his former supporters.
Pavel Nedved has allegedly revealed that he is mulling over an offer from Inter, but will consider rejecting it out of respect for Juventus supporters.

Press reports suggested yesterday that the Nerazzurri were in negotiations with 'Czech Fury', who is a free agent after refusing the terms of a new deal with former club Juve.

According to Tuttosport, the 36-year-old spoke directly with Beneamata president Massimo Moratti yesterday and asked to have a meeting with Jose Mourinho, presumably to gauge the Portuguese coach's desire to have him in his squad.

It means that the former Sparta Prague man is seriously considering defecting to the Old Lady’s bitter rivals, but Tuttosport claims he has revealed his torment to a friend.

“Inter are making a relentless courtship and I am very tempted,” he allegedly said.

“I don’t care about Juve as a club, but I do not want to come off as a traitor in the eyes of the fans.”

His agent, Mino Raiola, has confessed that the Nerazzurri have already knocked on his door several times in the past to take his client to the San Siro.

“On at least three occasions, Pavel refused to join Inter out of loyalty to Juve. By doing so he gave up lots of money,” said the representative.
