Moscow, March 29 – The International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) has expanded the sanctions imposed on the former leaders of Turin “Juventus” in the framework of the financial fraud case, according to Sky Sports News, quoting the organization.
In January, the Italian Football Federation’s (FIGC) Court of Appeal held hearings to reopen the trial in the financial fraud case. The FIFA Public Prosecutor’s Office deprived Juventus of 15 points, and also removed a number of club officials from football, including manager Fabio Paracci, former president Andrea Agnelli, former CEO Maurizio Arrivabene and vice president Pavel Nedved.

FIGC has called for the sanctions to be extended to former Juventus executives worldwide. FIFA confirmed that it agreed to this request. The ban on football activity in all tournaments under the auspices of the International Federation affected Paratici, who is currently the director of sports at London Tottenham. Sky Sports suggests the Italian will not be able to directly carry out any transfer activities or be involved in the search for team coaches, but will be able to handle the inner workings of the club.
