sport news LaLiga calls for Juventus to be hit with sanctions after the ENTIRE board of ... trends now
LaLiga have demanded that immediate sanctions to be applied to Juventus following the shock resignation of the club's board of directors on Monday night, including president Andrea Agnelli and vice president Pavel Nedved.
The Spanish top flight have issued a press release calling for sporting sanctions, with the Serie A giants' entire board of directors unanimously resigning, after LaLiga had filed an official complaint against Juventus in April 2022.
The original April complaint was lodged with UEFA over breaches of financial fair play, and the club had previously been under investigation by the Public Prosecutor's Office in Turin.
The press release from LaLiga alleges that the Italian giants have 'concealed' the actual wage bill for their squad and 'accounted for transfers above fair value.'
Managing director Maurizio Arrivabene is set to remain in charge of his administrative duties despite also resigning, with the club set to fall into a significant period of transition.
The 2021-22 season saw a year of record-breaking losses published by the Turin club, with a £220million (€254.3m) loss registered.
The decision for a mass exodus from the board - which was front page news in Italy on Tuesday - was made on the proposal of president Agnelli, after the board agreed that it was in the best interest of the club for a new group of executives to take over at Juventus.

The Old Lady had denied wrongdoing following allegations of false accounting and market manipulation in October, following an investigation into financial statements.
But in a press release issued on Tuesday, November 28, LaLiga insinuated that sanctions would represent a pursuit of 'financially stable football in Europe', aligning with the Spanish top-flight's self-professed 'campaign'.
'Following the resignation of the Juventus board of directors late Monday Nov. 28, LaLiga demands immediate sports sanctions to be applied on the club,' read the statement.
'LaLiga filed an official complaint against Juventus with UEFA in April 2022 reporting financial fair play breaches being investigated by Italy´s Guardia di Finanza, an enforcement agency under the authority of the country´s Minister of Economy and Finance, and the Public Prosecutor's Office at the Court of Turin.
'Specifically, the complaint charges that Juventus accounted for transfers above fair value and under accounted for employee expenses, resulting in a breach of UEFA break even requirements. Additionally, the complaint charges that Juventus concealed the true wage bill of its players.
