Juventus have won their appeal against a 15-point deduction and will move up to third place in Serie A, although the decision may still be subject to further review or revision.
Juventus received a 15-point deduction in January due to an investigation into their historical transfer dealings that found alleged breaches related to a capital gains case.
However, the suspension of the deduction was granted while the club appealed the punishment. Meanwhile, Fabio Paratici, a member of Juventus’ staff, had his ban from football upheld.
Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved, and Fabio Paratici were among the individuals suspended from football by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) due to alleged breaches in relation to historical transfer dealings.
However, Juventus’ appeal to have their 15-point deduction revoked has been successful, and the case has been referred back to the Collegio di Garanzia by the FIGC. Although, Fabio Paratici’s ban from football remains upheld.
Juventus will move up to the third position in Serie A after their 15-point deduction was suspended, pending a re-evaluation of the case by the FIGC Federal Court of Appeal.
Juventus may see ban come back!
The initial punishment was handed to the club in January for alleged breaches related to historical transfer dealings in a capital gains case. Although some of Juve’s former board members, including Pavel Nedved, were cleared, Fabio Paratici and former chairman Andrea Agnelli have had their suspensions upheld.
Paratici received an extension of his 30-month ban from Italian football by FIFA in March, and this decision has now been extended worldwide, which is unfortunate news for Tottenham. Paratici has since stepped back from his role at Spurs, but has not officially resigned from the club.
Prior to their Europa League match against Sporting CP on Thursday, Juventus received the news that their 15-point deduction has been suspended. Next, they will face Napoli, who are currently leading in the Serie A, on Sunday.
