The investigation process is still being carried out by Guardia di Finanza and also the Public Prosecutor in Turin. If found guilty, Juventus will be subject to severe sanctions, in the form of being thrown into Serie B and also stripped of the last Serie A title.
This was stated by the President of CODACONS (Italian Consumer Rights Protection Association), Marco Donzelli. According to Donzelli, I Bianconeri have obtained an illegitimate advantage that has resulted in unhealthy competition in Serie A.
“The accusation system is very serious and highlights the last Serie A, also because of the real dominance of Juventus in recent years and ended last year,” Donzelli said, according to TMW.
“If Juventus unlawfully gains an advantage over a rival club by this kind of operation, the latest Serie A regulations will fail and, as a result, the Federation and the Market Competition Authority will have to step in and sanction them.”
“Beyond individual responsibility, the club will not be exempt from punishment,” explained Donzelli.
“For this reason and to protect thousands of fans, we will file a complaint with Antitrust and the Federal Prosecutor’s Office requesting the relegation of Juventus to Serie B and the revocation of the last Serie A title won under the shadow of this potentially illegal operation.” .
