Pavel Nedved has revealed the biggest regret of his career is not having the chance to play for Manchester United.
“A regret?” Nedved told Czech newspaper Idnes. “That I never played for Manchester United. I’d have liked that. The transfer was never on the table though, there was only Chelsea interested in me.”
“I liked the generation of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, whom I admired. I was a little bit jealous of Karel Poborsky, who played in Manchester and experienced great matches. I know he still feels that love.”
“In terms of team-mates, I’ve had a lot and I don’t want to offend anyone,” he stated. “If I had to pick one as the best though, I’d say Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He’s a striker who can cut through defences. He has scary power and height, as well as excellent technique.”
