Juventus Set To Plea With Serie A Over Point Deductions

Juventus Set To Plea With Serie A Over Point Deductions

Juventus Flag

Juventus are set to propose a plea bargain with Italy's soccer authorities regarding alleged irregularities in the payment of players' salaries.

According to a source close to the matter, a hearing with the court at the Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) has been rescheduled to Tuesday, earlier than the initially scheduled date of June 15.

Reports from several Italian newspapers suggest that Juventus will propose paying a fine and accepting a two or three-point penalty in the current Serie A championship.

This would be in addition to the 10 points already deducted for a separate accounting-related case. If the plea bargain is accepted, Juventus would finish the season in seventh place in Serie A and secure qualification for the next season's European Conference League.

However, the newspapers indicate that Juventus may have to forfeit their European Conference League spot due to potential sanctions from UEFA, European soccer's governing body, following a separate investigation.

The club officials have not commented on this matter.

Previously, Juventus has denied any wrongdoing and maintained that its accounts adhere to industry standards.

The investigations by sports authorities were initiated based on probes conducted by criminal prosecutors in Turin, where the club is headquartered.

The case involves allegations of false accounting, which could potentially lead to a trial for former Chairman Andrea Agnelli, 11 other individuals, and the club itself.
