Nedved's agent claims he will not retire

Juventus playmaker Pavel Nedved will not retire this summer, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The 36-year-old announced in February he would hang up his boots at the end of the season and released a statement thanking the Bianconeri and their fans.

However, Raiola claims that while the game against Lazio will be Nedved's last in a Juve shirt it will not be the last of his career.

"We still don't know what his future will be," he told Sky Italia. "He will play his last game as a Juve player and then we will see about the rest.

"Pavel decided not to continue playing for Juve, from Monday we will think about the rest, I have contacts with other clubs, there have been offers from him also in Italy but I'm not going to tell you what clubs they are. Pavel is closing an important page, he's not happy doing it because it was a difficult decision for him."

Raiola refused to expand on the reasons behind Nedved's decision to leave the Stadio Olimpico after eight years in Turin.

"We won't comment on the motives of the decision, it's not the time," he added. "It's not a financial problem, there are other matters that have led to this decision, but the player doesn't want to talk about it and I respect his decision.

"We never asked Juve for any guarantees whether financial or on coaching matters, nor a future in management."

The former Czech Republic international nearly quit last summer but instead opted to sign a new 12-month deal with the Turin club.
