The Italian Football Federation on Friday accused Juventus and seven previous team executives of fraud for the manner they handled player wage reductions during the coronavirus outbreak. This has put Juventus in greater legal danger.
Juventus announced at the beginning of the epidemic that 23 players had consented to a four-month wage reduction to assist the team in getting through the crisis. Prosecutors contend that the athletes only forfeited one month's wages.
Those accused include former sports director Fabio Paratici, former vice president Pavel Nedved, and former Juventus president Andrea Agnelli.
After receiving a 15-point deduction for incorrect accounting from the federation earlier this season, Juventus will face another sports trial as a result of the allegations.
The 15-point fine was deferred last month after an appeal to the Italian Olympic Committee, the nation's top sports court, and was sent back to the football federation's appeals court for a fresh ruling.
While everything is going on, prosecutors in Turin have also accused Juventus, Agnelli, and 11 other people of market manipulation, fraudulent billing, impeding watchdog agencies, and misleading communications via a firm listed openly on the Milan stock exchange.
As a result of Sevilla's victory against Juventus on Thursday, the club is now without any championships for the year.
