Juventus chief Secco risks Blanc row

"We have reminded Secco of his position as sports director and his duty to protect his image and that of Juve, even in personal relationships," said Blanc.

"We must also add, however, there was no evidence of misconduct by Secco."

Press reports today revealed how Secco was observed on his own for an hour before Juve's 2-0 victory over Siena, suggesting a split with powerbrokers Blanc and Lapo Elkann, who were both inside the stadium at the time.
