Juventus hit with fresh 10-point deduction for transfer deals

The Serie A Federal Court of Appeal of the FIGC has deducted ten points from Juventus.

A January decision that resulted in a 15-point fine was overturned in April, and a fresh inquiry into Juve’s prior transfer dealings was launched.

Pavel Nedved, a former vice president of Bianconeri, was one of eight executives who were found not guilty after gaining the opportunity to challenge the length of their suspensions.

A statement from Italy’s Football Association reads: “Called upon by the Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport to renew its assessment on the penalty to be imposed on Juventus for the so-called ‘capital gains case’, the Corte Federale d’Appello, chaired by Ida Raiola, sanctioned the Bianconeri club with ten penalty points in the league table to be served in the current football season.

“The Court also acquitted Pavel Nedved, Paolo Garimberti, Assia Grazioli Venier, Caitlin Mary Hughes, Daniela Marilungo, Francesco Roncaglio and Enrico Vellano of the charges.”

The latest decision was announced just before Juve’s Monday night match against Empoli. Massimiliano Allegri’s team will drop from second place in the rankings to seventh as a result of the deduction.

Juve’s chief football officer Francesco Calvo, said: “The first impressions are negative. We’re not satisfied. We expected it would arrive before the game.

“It’s too soon to make any further comment. We’ll put out a statement soon. First we need to read the written reasons to understand what margin there is for another appeal.”

Juve have been accused of adjusting balance statements by inflating transfer fees, but they insist that they did nothing wrong.
