Juventus deducted 15 points for current Serie A season

Juventus have been deducted 15 points for the current Serie A season after a case around alleged inflated transfer fees was reopened by an Italian court.

The Italian side can appeal the decision but if they are unsuccessful will drop down to the bottom half of the Serie A table.

Former Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has been banned for two years while Fabio Paratici, who is now employed as Tottenham’s managing director of football, has received a 30 month ban. The ruling applies to within the FIGC but whether he is able to work beyond Italy is unclear at this stage.

In April last year, 59 executives and 11 clubs were cleared in the plusvalenze case.

An initial appeal lodged by the Italian Football Federation’s federal prosecutor Giuseppe Chine to have it reopened was subsequently turned down. But evidence gathered by prosecutors in Turin in a separate civil case known as the Prisma investigation prompted Chine to file another motion for the sporting case to be heard again.

Juventus were third in the table with 37 points from 18 games before the points deduction was made official on Friday evening.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side were just one point behind second-placed AC Milan and 10 behind leaders Napoli.

However, they have now moved down to 10th place with just 22 points.

Juventus deny any wrongdoing and maintain the club acted in line with the international practice in the football industry and market conditions.
