La Liga calls for Juventus to face immediate sporting sanctions

La Liga have released a strong statement that calls for ‘immediate sports sanctions’ to be imposed against Juventus.

Following the club’s announcement on Monday that their entire board, including president Andrea Agnelli and vice president Pavel Nedved would resign, La Liga has responded to the move by calling for sanctions against Juventus as “part of its campaign to promote financially sustainable football in Europe.”

It comes amid investigations into the club over Financial Fair Play breaches. La Liga released a statement on Tuesday saying,

“Following the resignation of the Juventus board of directors late Monday, November 28, La Liga demands immediate sports sanctions be applied to the club”.

“La Liga filed an official complaint against Juventus with UEFA in April 2022 reporting financial fair play breaches being investigated by Italy’s Guardia di Finanza, an enforcement agency under the authority of the country’s Minister of Economy and Finance, and the Public Prosecutor, Office at the Court of Turin”.

“Specifically, the complaint charges that Juventus accounted for transfers above fair value and unaccounted for employee expenses, resulting in a breach of UEFA break-even requirements. Additionally, the complaint charges that Juventus concealed the true wage bill of its players”.

“This Monday, in the same statement announcing the resignation of its board of directors, Juventus acknowledges financial accounting irregularities, which are also aimed at misleading UEFA financial fair play authorities, among others”.

“As part of its campaign to promote financially sustainable football in Europe, La Liga, continues to pursue these complaints against Juventus and demands immediate sporting sanctions to be applied on the club by the relevant authorities.”
