Juventus consider legal action after Inter Milan keep 2006 Scudetto

Juventus are considering legal action after FIGC ruled that Inter Milan will retain the 2006 Scudetto.

The Italian Football Federation announced on Monday night that there is no judicial basis for the revocation of the Scudetto following a request by Juventus for the FIGC to leave the title vacant.

The Turin giants had been stripped of the 2006 crown after being found guilty of trying to influence referees as part of the Calciopoli scandal and the title was awarded to Inter Milan instead.

A statement from Juventus said: "The outcome of the Federal Council confirms the absolute treatment inequality in the event of similar circumstances.

"The petition submitted 14 months ago by Juventus allowed for a deep examination, unfortunately not followed by any acceptance of responsibility by the sports bodies involved, who instead dismissed their political role as governance.

"It is understood that, in order to protect their millions of fans, as well as the shareholders and employees, Juventus must pursue the right and proper verification of facts while looking for treatment equality.

"Therefore, the club's lawyers have been given the mandate to identify the best protection instruments in the administrative and international law.

"Management and lawyers are simultaneously proceeding with the assessment of the economic damages caused by such behaviours.

"Since the decision is far from providing equality and justice, Juventus want to assert all the internationally applicable rules at every relevant office."
