Sharing on DAZN, Jose Mourinho thought that Juventus’ 10-point penalty was a joke.
Juventus again confused the public. In January 2023, Juventus was deducted 15 points for the current season because it was accused of being involved in errors related to accounting, financial reports and manipulating transfer deals. However, shortly after, this penalty was revoked and the Bianconeri returned to the top 4 position.
However, in the context of Serie A with 2 rounds left, the appeal court of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) decided to subtract 10 points from the Turin team due to the act of raising fake capital through transfer activities. This means that Max Allegri’s army drops to 7th place with 59 points. Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma is just above thanks to 60 points.
Witnessing the punishment for Juventus, Mourinho told DAZN after Roma’s 2-2 draw with Salernitana:
” The Juventus penalty is a joke to me in the context of Serie A with two rounds left. For us, for everyone, even for Juve, it’s not easy for them. They accumulate. points on the pitch but then stripped after two days.”
“If I had known about this penalty before the match against Monza, Bologna, our approach in those matches would have been different. Given what we’ve been through, we decided to put everything into the European Cup final. “.
“I feel sorry for everyone, including Max Allegri, professional colleagues like me who have had to face this situation. The punishment concerns everyone. “
