Juventus, penalized with 15 points for the ‘capital gains case’

The Federal Public Ministry of Appeal of Italy partially accepted the appeal of the Prosecutor of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and the Juventus will be penalized with the loss of 15 points this season due to the case of capital gains and irregularities in some transfers.

Also, eleven directors of the Italian team will be sanctioned and eight clubs involved (Sampdoria, Pro Vercelli, Genoa, Parma, Pisa, Empolia, Novara and Pescara), with their respective coaches and managers, will be acquitted.

The list of sanctioned managers of Juventus is long: Paracti, will have to serve a punishment and will have to retire from his post for 30 months; Agnelli and Arrivabene, for 24; Cherubini, for 16; and Nedved, Garimberti, Vellano, Venier, Hughes, Marilungo and Roncaglio, for 8, as confirmed in an official statement by the FIGC.

The punishment comes after a case in which Juventus was accusedin addition to other clubs, to increase the market value of footballers to generate higher income in their transfers to achieve a fictitious surplus value. In this way, losses could be reduced, not recapitalized and the team strengthened.

In this way, Juventus, which was currently third with 37 points tied with Inter, will occupy tenth place with 22 units, 12 behind the fourth and last position that gives access to the Champions League and is held by the lazio.
