For Juventus new troubles coming related to sports justice. While the new verdict of the court of appeal on the capital gains case is expected on Monday, after the sports guarantee college has provisionally canceled the 15 penalty points, a new chapter opens for the Juventus club. The federal prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné referred the Juventus club to the national federal court - disciplinary section by way of "direct and objective liability, pursuant to art. 6, paragraphs 1 and 2, of the Code of Sports Justice, for the acts and behaviors carried out by its managers; and in the order Andrea Agnelli (at the time of the facts Chairman of the Board of Directors), Pavel Nedved (at the time of the facts Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors), Fabio Paratici (at the time of the facts Chief Football Officer), Federico Cherubini (at the time of the facts Head of Football Teams & Technical Areas), Giovanni Manna (at the time of the facts ds of the Under 23), Paolo Morganti (at the time of the facts Head of Football Operations), Stefano Braghin (at the time of the facts Director of the Youth Sector), to whom the violation of art. 4, paragraph 1, of the CGS for various acts and behaviors relating to four different aspects covered by the investigation: the 2019-20 season salary maneuver; the one for the 2020-21 season; the agents strand; partnerships with other clubs".
In particular, with regard to the 2019-20 salary maneuver, Agnelli and Paratici are accused of "the violation of art. 4, paragraph 1, of the CGS ('principles of loyalty, fairness and probity'), for having deposited with the Serie A League the agreements for the reduction of 4 months (March, April, May and June 2020) of 21 players and coach Sarri Maurizio, failing to deposit the economic agreements of integration or recovery of 3 of the 4 monthly payments waived (April, May, June 2020) already concluded with the same players and with the coach, in the knowledge that the economic agreements containing the salary supplements for the recovery of the waived monthly payments would have been deposited after 30.6.2020, or after the closure of the accounting year at 30.06.2020, as actually happened ". The same violation, in the latter case also including Nedved, "is contested for the 2020-21 season, in relation to the salary reduction agreements of amounts substantially equal to 4 months (March, April, May and June 2020) of 17 players in the knowledge that there would have been no effective salary reduction, as the same amounts would have been recognized to the same players (a circumstance that did not occur only for Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo) in subsequent sports seasons, as already agreed between the parties through private deeds not reported on federal forms (the so-called side letters)".
"Circumstance then actually occurred through the filing, after 30.6.2021, the closing date of the 2021 accounting year (except for Arthur Melo, who received the salary amounts waived in the 2022/23 season as an incentive to leave) of economic agreements for salary integration. All this, moreover, in order to postpone in subsequent years (2022 and, for some, even 2023) the costs related to the amounts waived by the players before 30.06.2021, with this, however, violating the accounting principle of economic accrual and, therefore, thusviolating the principle of par condicio with the other sister companies of the League of A , in terms of economic and financial equilibrium". The third line of investigation, relating to relations with agents, involves Agnelli, Paratici, Nedved, Cherubini, Manna, Morganti and Braghin for "the violation of art. 4, paragraph 1, of the Code of Sports Justice, for violating the principles of loyalty, fairness and probity, both independently and in violation and / or circumvention of the provisions of art. 6.2, paragraph 7, of the Regulations of Sports Agents of the FIGC and in competition with some agents in relation to a series of transfers, contract renewals or signing of a professional contract ".
The FIGC prosecutor also cites the operations related to the alleged violations such as the transfer of Spinazzola to Roma on 30 June 2019, the renewal of Giorgio Chiellini and 14 other transactions including sales, extensions and contracts from professionals.
"In this regard - communicates the FIGC - the positions of the clubs and their respective managers who have achieved these relations with Juventus will be evaluated at the outcome of further ongoing investigations, to date covered by secret investigation, following the transmission of the acts of the criminal investigation by the Public Prosecutor's Office of Turin to the competent prosecutors on 24 February 2023".
