  • Juventus will not be in the UEFA Champions League next season after their 10 points deduction
  • An initial 15 points penalty for capital gains was rescinded on appeal
  • Max Allegri’s side are now set to lose hundreds of millions for their absence next season

Juventus will lose substantial financial rewards for missing out on UEFA Champions League football next season after their latest capital gains punishment.

The Old Lady were slammed with a 15 points deduction for falsifying their account books in January, but it was rescinded on appeal and for further hearing.

This did not last as the FIGC court ruled on May 22 that they have been handed a 10 points deduction, which has seen them drop to 7th on the table and will miss out on the UCL next year.

According to Football Italia, it will be the first time in a decade that the Bianconeri will not take part in Europe’s premier competition.

Juventus to lose about €90m

The Italian giants are fourth on the UEFA 10-year coefficient behind Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, having played two finals in that time.

As detailed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the club will miss out on a potential €90m reward in UEFA bonuses and stadium revenue at the Allianz Stadium, owing to their absence.

The club could also lose players as some of their players are already targets for other clubs, including Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa.

Veteran attacker Angel Di Maria will also leave the club when his contract expires after talks over a further one-year extension broke down.

According to Goal, head coach Massimiliano Allegri’s future is also in doubt, with the club willing to overhaul the team with Napoli’s sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli set to join.

Mourinho unhappy over Juve’s deduction

Sports Brief reported that Jose Mourinho has expressed his dissatisfaction over the timing of the points deduction and feels sorry for Allegri and Juventus.

The Special One also noted that it changes things a bit for other teams, particularly for his Roma side, who could have taken a different approach to games if it was announced two games earlier.
