John Elkann is confident there is “no shadow over Juventus” after Antonio Conte’s house was searched in the betting scandal.
Police staged dawn raids to conduct searches and present notices of investigation on Monday morning, including Coach Conte due to his time at Siena last season and Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci.
“There is no shadow over Juventus or this Scudetto,” club patron Elkann told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“It was a tournament won on the field and it seems entirely clear that the issues of the last few days have nothing to do with Juventus.
“Today there is insufficient evidence to make any conclusions. This issue, as the sporting authorities confirmed, does not touch Juventus and now we’ll see how these investigations progress.”
There is the risk Conte could be suspended, leaving the Bianconeri without a Coach for next season.
“President Andrea Agnelli has said everything that needs to be said and was very clear. I haven’t spoken to Conte yet, but I know his state of mind and that is of someone thinking about the future and the many games to prepare.”
