"Above all it's a lifestyle choice. Me and my family are happy here in Turin. But I also owe a debt of gratitude to the Agnelli family [Juventus owners], for the faith they have shown in me. For me, Serie A or Serie B, it's the same. It's still soccer, even if it's played in a different spirit."
-- Juventus Czech playermaker Pavel Nedved, 33, announces he won't join
other stars fleeing the disgraced Turin club that has been relegated to Serie B
because for game-fixing. Already gone are captain Fabio Cannavaro (Real
Madrid), midfielder Emerson (Real Madrid) and defenders Lilian Thuram
(Barcelona) and Gianluca Zambrotta (Barcelona).
