The new punishment complements the two-year ban already imposed on Agnelli, who resigned as Juventus’ president in November 2022 following an investigation into the club’s transfer dealings.
Agnelli was also fined €60,000 by the Italian football federation on Monday after being found liable for misconduct in relation to player agents and partnerships with other clubs.
Juventus and seven other former Juventus directors agreed to negotiate with the federation in May over wages, while Agnelli was the sole figure in the decision to be tried. At the start of the pandemic, Juventus said 23 players had agreed to a four-month pay cut to help the club overcome the crisis. But prosecutors insisted the players only paid one month’s salary.
Juventus, who had 10 points deducted last season for miscalculation in a separate legal case, are at risk of additional points being deducted. Previously, the old man successfully appealed the penalty of 15 points deduction related to the falsified transfer transactions.
Agnelli and Juventus have denied wrongdoing. He and the entire Juventus board resigned in November 2022 following an investigation by Turin prosecutors into false accounting. Besides, UEFA is expected to decide soon whether Juventus should be banned from next season’s Conference League due to legal troubles.
