Due to an inquiry into the club’s prior transfer deals, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has delivered Juventus Football Club a severe blow by deducting 15 points from the team.
The FIGC issued a two-and-a-half-year punishment to current Tottenham manager and former Juve Director Fabio Paratici on Friday in addition to confirming the news.
Juventus was found to have inflated its balance sheet artificially by using transfers, which led to the penalties. Juventus has plummeted from third to tenth in the Serie A standings as a result of the deduction, leaving them 12 points outside of the UEFA Champions League spots.

Juventus has been a dominant force in Italian football for decades, winning 36 league titles and two UCL trophies. This is a major setback for the team and its supporters. Juventus, who denies any wrongdoing, is still expected to challenge the FIGC’s ruling.
Additionally, the club’s attorneys argued that the prosecution did not present enough evidence to meet the necessary standard for a new ruling.
According to reports, Agnelli, Vice President Pavel Nedved, and the rest of the Bianconeri board all quit their positions last year after an inquiry into financial irregularities during their tenure as leaders was started.
The result of this game and the appeals procedure will probably have an impact on the club’s future and its standing in Italian football history.
