Marcello Lippi believes that if Nedved had been on the pitch, Juventus would have "won" the 2003 Champions League final against AC Milan.
Nedved missed the final after receiving a yellow card in the semi-final against Real Madrid.
In 2003 we massacred Spanish football with Juve, we beat Real Madrid,”
said Lippi at the Festival dello Sport event.
“I am convinced that if Nedved had been there for Milan-Juventus, then we would’ve won the Champions League.
“So if I had to pick a player to bring with me in the most important match of my life, it would be Nedved.”
Although Juventus did not win the Champions League in 2003, Nedved won the Ballon d’Or trophy.
