Sport minister insists Juventus is not the problem of Italian football

February 2, 2023 - 6:00 pm

The Italian Sports Minister Andrea Abodi insists Juventus is not the problem after the Bianconeri were docked 15 league points for their use of capital gains.

Juve has been under several investigations for some time now and they have been punished for the capital gains case.

The Bianconeri fans are unhappy that their side has lost that many points and the other clubs who did business with them haven’t been punished yet.

Juve is the biggest club in the country and the investigators have used them as scapegoats, but in their defence, Abodi insists the whole football system has a problem.

He said via Football Italia:

“The issue is not Juventus, it is the whole football system in its entirety that needs to have a profound look at itself.

“I have always been very cautious, as it seems people believe the Minister for Sport can control and decide everything, but there are roles to be respected.

“What is happening is far more than a game of football. Some things cannot be done alone. The technicalities used in these deals need to be explained to the general public so they can understand.”

Juve FC Says

Comments from people like the minister make it obvious there might be an agenda against the Bianconeri in Italian football.

Juve remains one team the competition needs and frustrating them or demoting the Old Lady will not help anyone.

The club has vowed to fight back and fans hope they will succeed when they appeal the punishment.

    `there might be an agenda` all i saw is that he said Serie A is a mess. jeez louise. the fact we are being investigated has been fully explained, prove them wrong there is no issue. That conclusion from the quote is some olympic-level mental gymnastics there, but unlike like the beam, it doesn`t help with keeping things balanced. reminder: THE WHOLE BOARD RESIGNED. You don`t do that lightly .

    Inflating transfers have been a way to balance books after the EPL monopoly and especially since covid. Not just Serie A but La Liga and others to. And its because of the EPL. EPL is the super league, people talk about super league as something they dont wont but dont realize there already is a super league called the EPL were teams like Bournemouth and Brighton will take our top kids and coaches and can shell out a few hundred mill pounds every year while teams like Inter have to go out of their way to get a 35 year old Acerbi on a seasons loan. The state of Italian football is shit just like the other leagues and its because of the EPL monopoly. Inflating transfers have been a way to try and keep up with the EPL and the system have been rigged this way. Financial Fair Play have made it even worse as the EPL lives on revenues from TV deals and will always be profitable unlike Serie A clubs who have shit TV deals and in general poor business models.
