Agnelli anger at Conte treatment

Andrea Agnelli has hit out at the Italian sports tribunal which Juventus coach Antonio Conte is facing.

The Juventus President is unhappy that Conte, who is alleged not to have reported cases of match fixing whilst in charge of Siena, is facing the prospect of a lengthy ban if found guilty.

“We have realised the FIGC and its sporting justice system continue to operate outside of all logic for rights and fairness.

“For a long time and with great sense of responsibility, Juventus and its employees have maintained a relaxed and consistent attitude towards the institutions and respect for attitudes that straight away suggested a new attack was aimed at damaging the club.

“The results of these various charges show enormous contradictions and seem to protect exclusively those who committed sporting fraud. This is paradoxical and cannot be accepted.”
