Juventus Deducted Ten Points Following New Ruling

Juventus have been docked ten points after the new ruling by the Court of Appeal in their capital gains trial. The previous penalty had to be reduced as the College of Guarantee disagreed with the motivations concerning the conviction of some secondary officials. Instead, the suspension of the apical ones, including Andrea Agnelli and Fabio Paratici, were already final, Ansa relays.

Pavel Nedved, who used to serve as a vice president, and all the other board members were acquitted. The prosecutor Giuseppe Chinè asked for an 11-point deduction, as most of the previous charges held up. The Old Lady, which is about to face Empoli, drops to 7th place but remains within striking distance of the top four, especially should they prevail in Tuscany. They can appeal again.

Juventus will potentially face another trial due to further alleged transgressions on the payment of wages during the pandemic seasons and suspect partnerships with other teams and agents. They were deferred late last week after the attempts to plea bargain fell through, TuttoSport informs.

The prosecutor was willing to come to terms, CONI’s attorney general nixed the agreement. Since the Bianconeri were accused of disloyalty again, they couldn’t access such instrument because they would be repeat offenders. Chinè decided not to modify the charges. If the trial didn’t end by June 30th, as highly likely, the second potential point deduction would carry over to the next season. However, the parties could present a new accord to a different organ, the Federal Court.
