Juventus hit by fresh10-point penalty – Tribal Football

Juventus have been docked 10 points after a new hearing into their capital gains controversy.

Juve had been hit with an origina; 15-point penalty in January but Italy’s highest sporting court overturned the decision in April on appeal.

The new ruling drops Juve to seventh place.

A Juventus statement declared the club “takes note” of the decision and “reserves the right to read the reasons to evaluate a possible appeal” to CONI.

It added: “What was established by the fifth instance of judgment in this matter, which began more than a year ago, arouses great bitterness in the club and in its millions of supporters who, in the absence of clear rules, find themselves extremely penalised with the application of sanctions that seem to take into account the principle of proportionality.

“While not ignoring the need for urgency, which Juventus has never shied away from during the proceedings, it is emphasised that these are facts that still have to be evaluated by a judge.”
