Serie A: Juventus fined 15 points for dubious transfers

Italian sports justice has fined Juventus Turin 15 points for accounting fraud in player transfers, the Italian Football Federation said on Friday evening.

In the spring of 2022, Juve, along with ten other clubs, were acquitted in this case, but the Federation Court of Appeal granted the request of the federal prosecutor to reopen the case only against the Turin club, taking into account the elements transferred by the Italian court, which is also investigating the accounts of the Old Woman, it is reported Federation press release.

By imposing this 15-point penalty on Juventus, which “will be served in the current season”, according to the terms of this press release, the court went beyond the requirements of the prosecutor, who demanded the deduction of nine points.

Two years suspension of Andrea Agnelli

The appeal court also suspended the former leaders of the Turin club for long periods: two and a half years against former sporting director Fabio Paratici, today at Tottenham, and two years against ex-president Andrea Agnelli, who officially resigned this week. . And here the sanctions are stronger than the demands of federal prosecutor Giuseppe Chine.

Juventus have the opportunity to challenge this sanction before the Italian Olympic Committee (Coni), which greatly reduces their chances of finishing in the top four in Serie A and therefore qualifying for next season in the lucrative Champions League.

While other clubs have been prosecuted from the start, Juventus have always been at the forefront of the case, accused of markedly inflating the sale prices of some players to reflect artificially high capital gains in their accounts.

Juventus are also the subject of a legal investigation into possible accounting fraud to artificially cap their losses on their balance sheets presented to investors. In early December, the Turin prosecutor’s office demanded the resignation of Andrea Agnelli and eleven other ex-leaders. This request should be considered at the end of March. Andrea Agnelli announced his resignation at the end of November under legal pressure. His successor as president, Gianluca Ferrero, was officially inaugurated on Wednesday.
