In this episode, we discussed the recent developments in Italian football, where Juventus, one of the most successful clubs in the league, have been docked 15 points in the Serie A for alleged financial irregularities and false accounting. Additionally, Tottenham's transfer chief and former Juventus sporting director, Fabio Paratici, has been handed a 30-month ban from Italian football for his involvement in the alleged misconduct. The decision by the Italian national football federation (FIGC) has resulted in Juventus dropping from third to tenth place in the league table, missing out on the spots for European competition. The club has indicated that they will be launching an appeal and their lawyers suggest there has been "clearly unequal treatment" compared to other clubs, with several others being acquitted.
