The FIGC Court of Appeal has explained the reasons for Juventus&rsqu;s 10-point deduction with “personal responsibility” for Fabio Paratici, Andrea Agnelli, Maurizio Arrivabene and Federico Cherubini, resulting in a penalty for the Bianconeri.

It refers to the first FIGC trial involving Juventus’ inflated transfer values. January’s initial 15-point penalty was reduced to a 10-point deduction only a few weeks ago, and FIGC has now explained the reason for the penalty. Juventus’s former CFO, Fabio Paratici, was banned for 30 months and his responsibility was quantified by a four-point penalty for Juve.

Former president Agnelli was suspended for 24 months, corresponding to a three-point penalty. Former CEO Arrivabene was also banned for two years, but in this case the resulting penalty for Juve is two points, while Cherubini’s 16-month suspension resulted in a one-point penalty. The FIGC adds that the new decision was taken “from a fair perspective, meeting afflictive, proportional and reasonable criteria”. Juventus will not appeal the decision, as director Francesco Calvo has confirmed. Juventus now awaits the outcome of a second sports trial following a plea bargain agreement on Monday evening.
