“I have always said I expected a substantial discount, even if I never quantified the number of points I envisaged. I think that Juve can consider themselves relatively satisfied with the extra eight points, seeing as rumours over the past few days had suggested something less,” noted Cobolli Gigli.
In the summer the trial demoted Juventus to Serie B with a 30-point penalty. It was reduced to 17 on appeal and has now been cut to just nine in CONI Arbitration, so the Bianconeri are propelled up the table and back into the race for automatic promotion.
“Today we end a chapter in Juve’s history and from tomorrow will begin a new adventure. Our objective has always remained the same, though – to be in Serie A next season.”
