Juventus board members, including president Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved, have resigned as part of an investigation into account falsification.
On the proposal of Andrea Agnelli, who has led the training in Turin for the last 12 years, and taking into account “the relevance of pending legal and technical accounting matters”, all directors have resigned, reads on the ‘vecchia’ website Signora’.
At issue are the recent investigations by the transalpine authorities into two alleged fiscal ‘maneuvers’ by Juventus, related to the fictitious inflation of the market prices of first team players to obtain greater profits in their subsequent sale, and the postponement of payments to players in the fiscal year 2020, marked by the pandemic of covid-19so that the amounts were not considered in the respective fiscal year.
As for the last point, the agreement with the players was signed in March 2000, assuming the temporary waiver of four months salary, and, among them, will be the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, according to various Italian media.
The news reports that the Turin tax authority found, during the searches carried out in October, a document in which Juventus committed to paying 19.8 million euros to Ronaldo, exactly the amount corresponding to four months of salary, in a ongoing investigation.
Today, and at the request of the Agnelli administration, it has been indicated that Juventus’s managing director, Maurizio Arrivabene, will remain in office during the transition period for the new administration.
Andrea was the fourth Agnelli to preside over the club, after his grandfather Edoardo, his uncle Gianni, and his father Umberto.
The other departing directors, in addition to Andrea and Nedved, are Laurence Debroux, Massimo Della Ragione, Katryn Fink, Daniela Marilungo, Francesco Roncaglio, Giorgio Tacchia and Suzanne Keywood.
