Juventus pres, board members resign

The entire board of directors at Juventus, including president Andrea Agnelli, have resigned with the Italian club set to replace him with Gianluca Ferrero.

The collective resignation comes after Juventus’ financial statements underwent scrutiny by prosecutors.

Furthermore, Juventus published an annual loss of £220m for last season – a record-breaking fee in the history of the club.

A Juventus statement read: “The Board of Directors, considering the focus and relevance of the pending legal and technical-accounting issues, have deemed it in the best interest to recommend that Juventus adopt a new Board of Directors to deal with these issues.”

Alongside Agnelli, vice-president Pavel Nedved has offered his resignation as has chief executive Maurizio Arrivabene – but Juventus have asked the latter to remain in his position to transition over to the next board of directors.

Juventus confirmed yesterday that Turin-born Ferrero will replace Agnelli.

Juventus have also confirmed that Maurizio Scanavino will take over as general manager, while the vacated directorships remain unfilled as candidates are sought.

The club are set to hold a shareholders’ meeting on January 18 when all roles will be filled.-SkySports
