Former Juventus and Czech Republic legend Pavel Nedvêd is set to come out of footballing retirement, choosing to re-lace his boots and step back onto the pitch to play alongside his son for Czech side FC Skalna. 

The 45-year-old clearly feels he can still contribute to the game at this level, and will relish the rare opportunity to form a father-son playing combination.

As reported by Dream Team FC, the former Lazio man will put his current duties as vice-president at Juventus on ice, allowing him the time to leave Turin and play for the Czech side. 

Nedvêd was a dangerous winger in his day, causing the Serie A defences no end of worry with his notorious marauding runs.

Nedved's gloriously golden locks graced the pitches of both Lazio and Juventus, establishing the player as a true Serie A legend. 

Nedvêd was the key player in Juve's stunning 2002/03 season, which saw the club win Serie A, the Supercoppa Italiana and narrowly miss out on winning the Champions League after losing the final to Milan on penalties.

This stunning season saw Nedvêd finally recognised as one of the best players in the world scooping the much-coveted Ballon d'Or award. 

In addition to this, Nedved also scooped the personal accolades of the Czech Footballer of the Year, the Serie A Footballer of the year and the UEFA Best Midfielder of the Year - a truly stunning haul of awards.

Nedvêd will of course not boast the pace that saw him run riot at the top level of the game, but should still have the technical skills necessary to cause some havoc on the field.
