Juve’s 15 points return… for now

The Serie A classification changes again. And, apparently, it will not be the last time. The FIGC Guarantee College accepted the appeal filed by Juventus against the 15-point penalty for its alleged fictitious capital gains. The punishment is suspended pending a new trial by the Federal Court of Appeals, to which the case was remanded, while the sentences for directors Andrea Agnelli, Fabio Paratici, Federico Cherubini and Maurizio Arrivabene were confirmed.

The team coached by Allegri, then, is back in third place, two points behind Lazio and 16 behind Napoli, although their legal battle is still very long. The Federal Court will have to make up for the “lack of reasons” related to article 4 of the FIGC justice code, which determines the principles of “sports loyalty”. Theoretically, the Court could confirm the sanction although, as commented in Italy, it is most likely that it will be reduced. Determining how much is very complicated.

The decision further increases the uncertainty about the future of the championship. The Guarantee College can take about three weeks to publish its motivations and only then the Court of Appeal can establish a new hearing. The sports trial could be extended until after June 30, taking the eventual sanction to the next season, and, before all that, another one remains pending, on deferred salaries and relations with agents, which has not yet begun. Juve won a battle, but their judicial war has only just begun.

Juventus’ official response

Francesco CalvoJuventus’ head of football, commented on the decision on ‘Sky Sport’: “We are satisfied and hopefully we can keep these points, but we feel sorry for Agnelli, Arrivabene, Paratici and Cherubini. It is early to talk about the timing of the next sentences, we are convinced that we have always acted correctly”. Massimiliano Allegri, for his part, assured that “for the team the points were always 59, the ones they won on the field.”
