Partial success for ex-Juventus president: Andrea Agnelli shortens his suspension

Cause of alleged wage waiver

Former Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has reduced one of his two bans by six months to a total of ten months. The controversial official had lodged an appeal with the Sports Court of the Italian Football Association (FIGC) and has now at least achieved partial success.

The case was about the fact that the Italian record champions had allegedly negotiated a four-month salary waiver with their players at the beginning of the corona pandemic. Secretly, however, the club made agreements with the professionals to reimburse them for their monthly salaries at a later date.

Agnelli resigned with the entire Juve board at the end of 2022. He was then banned by the association because the Turin team had falsified the market values ​​of players under his aegis for years in order to be able to book higher amounts on the transfer market through deals with other clubs. Agnelli has already been banned for two years for that offense. Agnelli, who was once one of the co-initiators of the controversial Super League, has also appealed against this suspension.

Andrea Agnelli is a descendant of the influential Turin Agnelli family of “Fiat” founder Giovanni Agnelli. From 2017 to 2021 he was also Chairman of the European Football Clubs Advocacy Group (ECA).
