Italy Sports Body Returns 16 Pts To Juventus, Moves To 3rd On Serie Standings

Italy Sports Body Returns 16 Pts To Juventus, Moves To 3rd O


In a dramatic turn of events, Italy's top sports body, the Sports Guarantee Board, has cancelled the decision to dock Serie A club Juventus 15 points in a case centred on the club's transfer dealings.

The decision comes after Juventus appealed a sentence issued by Italy's soccer court in January, which had also imposed bans on 11 past and present Juventus directors, including former Chairman Andrea Agnelli.

The Sports Guarantee Board partially accepted Juventus' appeal, but did not clear the club of wrongdoing. Instead, they ruled that a soccer court made up of different judges should now hold new proceedings against Juventus and the directors to come up with a more appropriate punishment.

With eight games left to play in the Serie A season, this decision will lift Juventus from seventh to third in the league table, with 59 points. While they are still 16 points behind leaders Napoli, they will now be back in the qualifying spots for the lucrative European Champions League.

This decision has caused mixed reactions among football fans and experts. Some believe it is a fair outcome, allowing Juventus to have another chance to present their case and potentially avoid a significant points deduction. Others argue that it sets a dangerous precedent and undermines the authority of Italy's soccer court.

Juventus, known as the most successful soccer club in Italy, will now await the new proceedings and the final decision of the soccer court regarding their transfer dealings. The case has garnered widespread attention and is likely to continue to make headlines in the coming weeks as the saga unfolds.
