Ronaldo completed his €112 million move from Real Madrid last month
and scored his first goal for the Bianconeri in the annual friendly game
between the club's senior and youth teams on Sunday.
Nedved told Juventus TV: "Juventus' step forward among the big clubs in Europe has been confirmed further.
"That we managed to bring Ronaldo to Juventus is something exceptional.
"It'll give us a bit more for the future, as well as for all of Italian football."
Nedved also spoke highly of new signing Emre Can, who joined the
defending Serie A champions as a free agent after his Liverpool contract
"There's been very little talk about Emre Can but this was an
important move," Nedved added. "He was wanted across Europe by many big
clubs but we managed to sign him. He's a player with a lot of substance
to his game both tactically and technically.
"He is a typical German player who knows how to distribute very well. You'll see that he will be very important to the team."
