Czech midfield ace Pavel Nedved is to quit international football to concentrate on his Juventus career.

The 32-year-old, name European Footballer of the Year in 2003, took a break from playing for his country recently so he could regain full fitness following a knee injury.

And he has now decided to retire permanently citing the rigours of Serie A.

Nedved also revealed his decision to quit was made easier by the criticism he received for taking the initial break.

Nedved won 83 caps for his country - the last of which came in the semi-finals of Euro 2004 as the Czechs went down to Greece.

He limped out of that game as the Greeks won 1-0 en route to winning Euro 2004.

thats a shame for the chezchs, he is a awesome player, amazing at passing, crossing, good attitude, like the model footballer. i guess its good news for juventus manager capello.

still, i think the chezchs have a good team and will continue to improve, alot of there players are still young

I would have liked to see Nedved play in the Premier League. It's a shame none of the big teams tried hard enough to sign him....

Well he is 32, but he should be worth a few million. He can't be over the five mill range as someone like Owen only went for 8 or 9 million.

Would Chelsea need him though they have a sick amount of midfielders at the club lol!
