UEFA Official Mum on Possible Sanctions Versus Juventus

UEFA will wait for the Italian sports justice to take its course before eventually punishing Juventus too. The deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti talked with GR Parlamento (via EuroSport).

“There is an ongoing investigation, and the sentence will be appealed. We will wait for all the documents to assess whether there is something that concerns our bylaws. Juventus will face judgment like any other teams. Their qualification to a European cup is not certain either.”

The Bianconeri are considering dropping out of the Super League to avoid sanctions.

“The attempt to mend fences doesn’t hinge on UEFA, which protects the interest of all European clubs. It’s up to them to choose what they want to do. We don’t decide as a monolith but along with our stakeholders, the teams. We consider the breakaway competition a threat. It’s a project that want to exclude somebody. It’s untrue that its aim is to save football. Any format wouldn’t change its nature.”

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Turin prosecutors added a hefty dossier to the evidence against the previous brass concerning the fake capital gains, wages, and secret deals with other clubs. The preliminary hearing judge will weigh them until March 27th, when he’ll rule on whether the defendants should be sent to trial.

The paperwork has been mailed to six other DA’s offices, which will look into whether different sides, Atalanta, Bologna, Sassuolo, Cagliari, Sampdoria, and Udinese, had similar misconducts and broke the law. However, Juventus are the only listed ones, so they have to follow tighter rules.
