Juventus received the certainty of being sanctioned with a 10-point deduction, just a matter of minutes before the Italian League match against Empoli, Tuesday (23/5/2023) early morning WIB. The penalty threw them outside the top four, which was exacerbated by a 4-1 loss.
Juventus was caught up in a case of inflating transfer values to increase capital gains. Previously they had been given a 15 point deduction sanction, but this was later revoked after an appeal to CONI.
A retrial was then conducted. FIGC prosecutor Giuseppe China insists Juve are still at fault and suggests deducting 11 points.
The trial panel then made a decision by deducting 10 points for Juventus. The Old Lady was then thrown into seventh place with 59 points.
Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, has expressed his frustration about this punishment. Juventus seemed to be drowned.
Questioning this, Mourinho felt sorry for the people at Juventus because the punishment was handed down when the season was about to finish. On the other hand, the man from Portugal was sarcastic when Juventus’ penalty was lifted.
“It’s a joke to know this with two games to go. For us and for everyone, even for Juventus. Our approach would have been different if we had known before the games against Monza and Bologna,” Mourinho told DAZN.
“I’m sorry for Allegri and the players, something changed this season. For me yes (to be a distortion), but I don’t want to talk about this anymore. I’m sorry for the professionals who work like me because they pay for the mistakes made by the directors and maybe the club,” he said.
