Juve investigation, prosecutor: “Agnelli aware of illegal manoeuvres”

Paratici “central to the conception, development and implementation of ‘artificial’ capital gains”

“Agnelli is fully aware of the serious patrimonial, economic and financial situation of the company and of the need for ‘corrective measures'”. So in the papers of the Turin prosecutor’s office that he investigates the Juventus accounts investigation. “The ‘corrective manoeuvres’ in question, however, are ‘illicit manoeuvres’ and Agnelli is fully aware of this”, write the judges.

As for Fabio Paratici, “at the top of the sports area in the years of interest, he undoubtedly covered a central role in the conception, development and implementation of ‘artificial’ capital gains”.

For the prosecution, then, “Pavel Nedved, vice president of the board of directors and Agnelli’s trusted persons, appears fully aware of the corporate dynamics with a view to remedying excess costs not with effective savings but with anomalous conduct, ultimately unlawful instance”.

Among other things, Agnelli’s words in a telephone conversation following “a meeting organized on a confidential basis” in September 2023 with some representatives of Serie A clubs which were also allegedly attended by representatives of Lega Calcio Serie A and FIGC: “I hope something will emerge because otherwise I don’t know what to do. Now this element here has to be the harbinger of something useful because otherwise we’ll crash slowly”.
