FIGC completes investigation into Juve ‘hidden payments’ investigation

April 13 – The Italian FA (FIGC) has completed its investigation into Juventus over alleged hidden payments to players, according to the club.

Juventus, who have already been hit with a 15-point Serie A deduction this season in a separate case over players’ transfers, could face further sporting penalties if found guilty.

FIGC prosecutors allege that Italy’s most successful team agreed to pay players back most of their COVID-19 related wage cuts without properly accounting for it.

Juve will now have access to the FIGC prosecutor’s documents and have 15 days to file their own documents or request to be interviewed.

Prosecutors will then decide whether the club should face a sports tribunal.

Juventus said in a statement they had “correctly applied the relevant international accounting standards”.
