We won’t be seeing Juventus in European competition next season.
“Juventus will be expelled from the UEFA Europa League for breaching financial fair play (FFP) rules,” the BBC reported on Monday.
Juventus finished seventh in the league last season and qualified for the Europa League despite a points deduction. However, in addition to being banned from the competition, the club was also fined for violating FFP rules.
“The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) must find a team to replace Juventus in the Conference League and report it to UEFA,” the outlet said. The most likely candidate is ACF Fiorentina, which finished eighth in the league.” 토토사이트
According to reports, Juventus president Gianluca Ferrero said: “We regret UEFA’s decision. We do not share the interpretation given to our defense, and we are firmly convinced of the legitimacy of our actions and the validity of our arguments.” “However, we have decided not to appeal this decision. An appeal with an uncertain outcome and timing would increase uncertainty for the 2024-2025 Champions League season.”
On the same day, the UK’s The Athletic reported that “The FIGC must complete an application for Fiorentina’s entry into European competition, which is next in line after Serie A, and UEFA will confirm this in due course. As a result of Juventus’ ban, Aston Villa will move from unseeded to seeded in the second round of the playoffs in August.”
