According to reports, European giants Juventus could be at risk of getting banned from European competitions for at least a year following the several ongoing legal issues facing the club.
Calciomercato report claims that if the accusations labelled against Juventus in relation to a disputed crime of anti-sportsmanship or violation of financial fair play were proven right, the Bianconeri could risk exclusion from European competitions for at least a year.
This comes after being docked of 15 points in the ongoing Serie A season due to financial irregularities.
In 2021, Juventus were fined €3.5m for failing to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations but these new developments could see that number rise to around €23m if found guilty of not sticking to the rules.
This would mean that the Bianconeri could be banned from European Competitions for more than a season depending on the figures.
There is also a detailed report of how the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) – office is ready to ask the court for a 40-day extension into the investigation of the club’s finance and revenue activities.
UEFA President, Alexander Ceferin and a small executive committee are expected to meet later this afternoon at their headquarters in Switzerland to deliberate the circumstances facing the Italian club, amongst many other issues.
The football body will only take action against Juventus at the end of the trials in Italy. Should the accusations be proven true, the Old Lady could be excluded from European competitions by UEFA for at least one year.
