Juventusโ€™ 10 points deducted over illicit transfer

Juventus on Monday were given a 10-point deduction in Serie A after a revision of their initial 15-point penalty inflicted on the club over illicit transfer activity.

The new sanction, announced by the Italian Football Federationโ€™s (FIGC) appeals court, dents Juventusโ€™ hopes of qualifying for next seasonโ€™s Champions League, pushing them out of the top four with three matches remaining this season.

In April, Italyโ€™s highest sporting court, the Sports Guarantee Board, revoked Juveโ€™s 15-point penalty inflicted by the FIGCโ€™s appeals court and sent the case for a new judgement.

It asked the appeals court to revise punishments handed down to the club and some key figures, including former vice-chairman Pavel Nedved.

Juventus said they โ€œreserve the rightโ€ to appeal the latest decision to the Sports Guarantee Board.

โ€œWhile not ignoring the need for urgency, which Juventus has never shied away from during the proceedings, it is emphasised that these are facts that still have to be evaluated by a judge,โ€ the Turin giants said on Twitter.

Long bans given to former chairman Andrea Agnelli, ex-CEO Maurizio Arrivabene and sporting directors Federico Cherubini and Fabio Paratici were upheld in April.
