Nedved hails Juventus winning mentality

The former Czech Republic international believes the current squad's exploits are hugely commendable and has set his sights firmly on helping the side progress even further
Pavel Nedved has hailed Juventus' winning mentality after they secured their second consecutive Serie A title with a 1-0 win over Palermo at the weekend.

The former midfielder, currently part of Juve's board of directors, feels the current crop of players has progressed rapidly in the last couple of seasons and is confident they can continue to deliver trophies in the near future.

"The players possess the winning mentality that Juventus is all about. Everyone’s done really well, be it the coach or the group of players. I think they’ve all improved since last year’s triumph, so you can only take your hat off to them," Nedved told the official Juventus website.

"I think the applause should go to the coach and all the players because, like I said, everyone’s improved in so many aspects – progressing in the Champions League and winning the Scudetto by this kind of margin is a really difficult thing to do.

"Even after two Scudetto titles and a Super Cup victory, there are still other targets in mind, so we have to sit down and discuss how we can improve and what’s required to keep on winning."

Juventus meet Atalanta, Cagliari and Sampdoria in their remaining three Serie A games.
