Former Juventus star hits out at Italian defender.Former Juventus star Pavel Nedved has aimed an extraordinary blast at his old team-mate Giorgio Chiellini for his reaction to Luis Suarez’s bite on him at the World Cup this summer, Sport reports.
The 41-year-old, now working as a sporting director for the Italian champions, admits he empathises with Suarez as he feels he was a similar type of player during his career, though he does not condone what he did.
Still, the former Czech Republic winger reserved most of his criticism for Chiellini, saying he reacted badly to the incident, though he was glad he spared himself more embarrassment by accepting Suarez’s apology later.
“Suarez I can understand, I was a similar sort of player to him,” Nedved is quoted as saying.
“Although obviously I don’t approve of his actions.
“But what made me most angry was the reaction of Chiellini. He behaved like a child.
“Luckily, at least he accepted the apology of Luis Suarez, showing a little bit of intelligence.”
