Juventus set for massive points deduction

Juventus are now set to be subjected to a 15-point penalty for their involvement in the capital gains saga in the Serie A.

The FIGC Court of Appeal has now accepted the motion of the Public Prosecutor who had asked for the trial on capital gains to be reopened. A higher penalty than that requested by the prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné, who had asked for 9 penalty points.

It was reported earlier that Chine had recommended that Juve get a nine-point penalty for the capital gains case, along with suspensions for the likes of Fabio Paratici, Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved and the others involved in the case. But it has now been learned that while other clubs have been acquitted, Juve have been handed a 15-point penalty and suspensions will be handed to the aforementioned people.

Andrea Agnelli has been suspended for two years, while Paratici has been suspended for two and a half years.
