New Board Of Juventus In Legal Hot Water
Juventus, the well-known Italian club that has become one of the most successful in Europe, has recently appointed its new board. The board is taking over from the old one as the club faces some accounting problems that have turned somewhat into a scandal. The new board has had to deal with sporting authorities in relation to the dealings that the club has made in the last few months.
Gianluca Ferrero is among this group and is set to be replacing Andrea Agnelli after the chairman and other board members decided to resign together. This was done as watchdogs and other prosecutors began to watch the finances of the Italian-based club. The news came as a surprise to many, especially considering that it was widely believed Juventus has been nothing short of successful over the last few years.
What’s Going To Happen Next
The board will be replaced, with Sipunculan Ferrero being one of the first to take over. Ferrero is the son of Cesare Ferraro, who for many years worked for Gianni Agnelli, the late boss of automotive company Fiat. He is close friends with John Elkann, who is a senior member of the family that has owned Juventus for the better part of the last 100 years.
Exor is the holding company for the Agnelli family, and this is the holding company that is in control of the club. It’s been proposed that Maurizio Scanavino, who is the head of the GEDI media group, to become the new CEO of Juventus. More changes to the staff of the board are expected to happen in the future, but for now it seems that the club is mainly going to focus on damage control and mitigation.
It’s expected that lawyers and accountants will make up the board that’s being proposed by Exor, and it’s being done with the hope that this new team will be able to protect the club from the many legal and financial troubles that they might potentially be facing down in coming months. Part of the prosecution’s aim is that 11 people, along with Agnelli must all stand trial over allegations that they doctored their accounting.
The board has been accused of cooking the books and are facing serious charges. The club has defended itself, saying that everything they have done has been above board. In a statement to the press, Juventus said that all the allegations that have been put forth by the prosecution team are untrue and were not the same conclusions that were reached by Consob, which is a regulator for the Italian market. Interested followers will need to stay occupied with work or Ruby Fortune casino until more information can be released.
Juventus also stated that they have always conducted themselves well, and that they will uphold the club’s rights, including its right to defend its interests wherever it needs to. It remains to be seen what the outcome of the procession will look like.
