Ruud Gullit comments on Juventus 15-point deduction

February 21, 2023 - 3:30 pm

Ruud Gullit has commented on Juventus’ 15-point deduction for their use of capital gains and he hopes the Bianconeri have learnt their lesson.

Juve is struggling to move up on the league table now, but if the deductions are removed, they could be as high as second on the league table.

They are being punished for an offence most clubs commit, which shows how dirty the other side of football is.

Authorities are attempting to get it cleaned up and have used the Bianconeri as scapegoats.

However, Juve will continue to fight to clear its name and Gullit believes the punishment will teach them a valuable lesson and other clubs around.

He says via Football Italia:

“It’s always bad when something like this happens. You never want to face a similar situation, which should never happen in a big club like Juventus. I hope they’ve learned now.

“They were penalised and it’s a pity. The rest of Europe is not surprised and this is the worst thing. Juventus are a great club and don’t need this. I am confident they have understood.”

Juve FC Says

If we have done nothing wrong like the club claims, there is no lesson here for us to learn and we need to clear our name.

As one of the most successful clubs in Italy, we do not get the respect we deserve for putting the country on the map, which is sad.

    we have been a non-discussion outside of Italy for years, until the latest scandal from incompetence. allegri is continuing to do that for us while you all talk about `the good old days`. We were promised a rebuild, but got a recycled old dinosaur and bargain basement players except one or two genuine world class talents that are regressing, while those at the top are massaging figures and we get the humiliation yet again. We are seen with pity in a footballing sense; while United got it right with ten hag, a fresh approach and some new players , a genuine rebuild. #BanterEra

    Respect is earned, not given! What has Juve done in the past 10 years to warrant respect outside of Italy? 2 Champions Leagues finals where we were totally outplayed? 9 years of winning the league was phenomenal, but not at the expense of trying to find shortcuts, or bad business. This team has no identity other than Allegri thinking he can conquer the world with 1-0 wins. Score and park the bus. Great philosophy. Stop being a cheerleader and realize we are the laughing stock of European soccer.

    Have Gullit forgot how many times Milan has been polished an relegated? It seems so. If Juve are polished, so should Milan. So cool it, Gullit.
