Former Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli given 16-month ban


An Italian football court has imposed a 16-month ban from the game on former Juventus Chairman Andrea Agnelli in a case over irregularities in the club’s payments to players, the national football association (FIGC) said on Monday.

Agnelli, one of the figures behind a failed European Super League project in 2021, was also given a 60,000 euro  fine, the FIGC said.

He was Juventus chairman for more than a decade but announced his resignation last November following a financial scandal that hit Italy’s most successful soccer team.

As part of the same case, Juventus in May agreed to pay a fine of 718,000 euros and not challenge a 10-point penalty for the past Serie A season, in a settlement it reached with Italy’s football authorities.
