Juve midfielder Nedved said of the Inter Milan striker: "Unfortunately he is no longer with us, but on the other side.
"For a long time he's been capable of making the difference in games. I know him well and he is predestined to sooner or later win a major trophy on a personal level.
"He is on track."
On this weekend's clash, Nedved added: "It's the Italian derby, a game every player wants to play in. But it is only for three points, nothing more. They do not give out trophies at this stage of the season."
