Juventus Handed Massive Sanction in Plusvalenze Trial

Juventus have been deducted 15 points in the standings as a result of the re-opening of the first part of the plusvalenze trial, for which they were originally acquitted last May. The Court of Appeal of the Federation went beyond the request of prosecutor Giuseppe Chinè, who had demanded a nine-point punishment, per La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Bianconeri were re-tried following the new revelations stemming from the Prisma inquiry by the DA’s office of Turin, which caused Andrea Agnelli and the other board members to step down. The former president faces a two-year ban, along with previous CEO Maurizio Arrivabene. Current Tottenham director Fabio Paratici has been handed a two-and-a-half year suspension, Juventus exec Federico Cherubini a 16-month one.

All the other clubs and their respective officials have been cleared. The Old Lady will appeal to a Court within CONI, the Italian Olympic Committee. They will face further trials for new pluvalenze and delayed wages that weren’t properly accounted for during the pandemic down the line. They could face punishment also from UEFA because of Financial Fair Play violations. Juventus dropped to the tenth position following the hefty penalty.
