Juventus warned they risk relegation and titles revoked

Juventus have been warned they risk relegation over their accountancy investigation.

The Italian association for the protection of consumer rights, CODACONS, has stated Juve could be relegated to Serie B and stripped of their last Scudetto titles.

Juventus are accused of false accounting and CODACONS president Marco Donzelli told TMW: “The accusatory system is very serious and throws a sinister light on the last football championships, also because there has been a real Juventus dominance in recent years, which ended in the past year.

“If Juventus were to have illegitimately gained an advantage over rival clubs with operations of this type, then the regularity of the last football championships would fail and, as a consequence, the Federation and the Authority for market competition will have to intervene and sanction those responsible.

“Beyond individual responsibilities, the club will not be exempt from punishment. For this reason and to protect thousands of fans, we will present a complaint to the Antitrust and the Federal Prosecutor's Office asking for the relegation to Serie B for Juventus and the revocation of the last league titles won in the shadow of these potentially illegal operations."
