European ban awaits Juventus?

European ban awaits juventus? 0

Disqualification from European tournaments is a possibility for the black and whites following the conclusion of an inquiry into Juventus’ finances by UEFA in June; however, this outcome is subject to alter in the event that Juventus formally withdraws from the proposed European Super League.

The Serie A giants have received a fresh 10-point penalty for the 2023-24 season, but this is just the beginning of their punishment. In June, a new FIGC trial will begin, and at the same time, UEFA will conclude its investigation.

The regulatory body of European football may choose to penalize the black and white teams for one of two possible reasons. First, a breach of the Rules of Fair Play and proper conduct in athletic competition, and second, a violation of the rule governing the FFP.

Now, investigations in Italy tend to demonstrate that Juventus fraudulently skewed their balance sheets, which allowed their prior managers to negotiate a favorable FFP agreement with UEFA. This came about as a result of the club’s attempt to remain competitive in the financial fair play rankings. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, if Juventus had been given access to the “real” numbers, the outcome of the case would have been different. Juventus were only permitted to pay a fine of 3.5 million euros rather than 19.5 million euros.

According to the source, UEFA is willing to engage in conversation with Juventus so long as the team makes an official withdrawal from the Super League. Their previous chairman Andrea Agnelli was one of the architects of the breakaway tournament that was established two years ago, and Juventus are still officially engaged in the competition alongside the titans of La Liga, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

UEFA, on the other hand, is not going to be ready to discuss a lower term if Juventus does not make any concessions. Because of this, UEFA would have been “surprised” if “no one from Turin has called” in an effort to start a conversation about the situation.

If Massimiliano Allegri’s squad were unable to gain a spot in a European tournament this season, the prospective European suspension would not begin until the Bianconeri qualified for the Champions League, Europa League, or Conference League. As a result, the potential ban would not apply for the 2023–24 season if the Bianconeri did not qualify for a European competition this season.
