The media have additionally been left in a state of shock by the FIGC ruling. It had been broadly thought that Juve had been in deep trouble – the resignation of your complete board was an ominous signal – however the severity of the sentence nonetheless took many unexpectedly.
Certainly, it’s value noting that earlier on Friday Chine had solely referred to as for a nine-point penalty for Juve; as an alternative, they had been docked 15 factors.
The Gazzetta dello Sport referred to as it a “sensational sentence”, above a headline which purple ‘Juve stung!’
The pink paper supplied fairly a measured tackle the affair, although, arguing that if Juve had been responsible of the crimes in query, they deserved to be punished.
It was a really completely different story in Tuttosport, the Turin-based sports activities each day which referred to as the ruling “Loopy stuff! Juve -15: Injustice is completed!”
They significantly needed to know why solely Juve had been punished, given it ought to, in concept, take two golf equipment to inflate a switch payment.
Bear in mind, Sampdoria, Empoli, Genoa, Parma, Pisa, Pescara, Professional Vercelli and Novara had been all absolved of any wrongdoing and this was a theme picked up by former Italy worldwide Antonio Cassano.
“Look, I hardly ever defend Juve on any degree, as a result of they play horrible soccer, however on this case I’m on the Bianconeri’s aspect,” he told BoboTV. “Which means in the event that they made a mistake, it’s proper that they pay, even going into Serie C.
“But it surely must be the identical for everybody. If that occurs, it’s not simply Juve who’re going to be punished, it’s going to be a tidal wave by Serie A, B and C.
“Clearly, Juve warrant 50 pages within the newspapers, whereas the opposite golf equipment are all little sidebars. Allow us to not child ourselves that solely Juve did this: in the event that they did this, then different golf equipment did too they usually should all be punished.”
Nevertheless, it has been claimed by monetary specialists in each the Gazzetta and Il Messaggero that Juve have been deemed a particular case by the FIGC prosecutor, in that they, not like the opposite golf equipment investigated, intentionally and fairly cynically manipulated their accounts to order to achieve a aggressive edge over their rivals.
Once more, although, solely when the FIGC absolutely clarify the sanctions will we’ve got a greater thought of why solely Juve have been punished.
