Juventus 15-point deduction reversed

Juventus 15-point deduction reversed

Juventus’ 15-point deduction for false accounting has been reversed with the Italian Olympic Committee ruling the case be re-examined. 

The points deduction was imposed in January for false accounting and saw Juventus fall from the Champions League qualification places to mid table but now find themselves in third place after the points were reinstated. 

Tottenham director of football Fabio Paratici lost his appeal against a worldwide ban from football and has now left his role with Tottenham. Former president Andrea Agnelli, ex-chief executive Maurizio Arrivabene and sports director Federico Cherubini had their appeals rejected. Former player and director Pavel Nedved, Paolo Garimberti and Enrico Vellano were successful with their appeals.

The decision does not mean Juventus have been cleared of any wrongdoing, they will now return to the Italian Football Federation appeals court who issued the 15-point deduction. Prosecutors had requested a 9-point deduction but the appeals court decided on a 15-point deduction which the Olympic Committee has now ruled was disproportionate.
