Italian football federation docks Juventus 15 points for false accounting

Italian football federation docks Juventus 15 points for false accounting

Juventus have been docked 15 points in Serie A by the Italian football federation for false accounting. 

A prosecutor had requested a points deduction of 9 points but the federation went beyond this in order to impose a 15 points deduction. Juventus were in third but now see themselves ninth, 14 points away from Champions League qualification and 11 points away from European competition altogether. 

In November 2022 it was announced public prosecutors were investigating the clubs finance records with the entire board resigning once the investigation was announced. Former president Andrea Agnelli was banned for two years whilst bans were also handed to other former board members. Former sporting director Fabio Paratici, who is now managing director of football at Tottenham, was handed a 30 month ban so Tottenham are seeking clarification on whether or not his ban extends outside of Italian football. 

The alleged false accounting includes the club claiming 23 players had agreed to reduce their salary for four months in order to help the club during the Covid-19 pandemic when in actually fact this was only done for one month. 

It is understood that Juventus will appeal this decision.
