FIGC 'not in conflict' with Juve

FIGC President Giancarlo Abete insists “there is no reason to have a rapport of conflict with Juventus.”

In recent months with the betting scandal and Antonio Conte’s 10-month ban, Juve have released several very harsh statements criticising the “dictatorial” sporting justice system.

They also implied the problems with the system stretch back to Calciopoli, while the club has the motto ‘30 on the field’ written on the team jersey – including the two Scudetti stripped in the scandal.

“The Federation has no reason to have a rapport of conflict with Juventus,” assured Abete on Sky Sport Italia.

“That is true not only because of what the Bianconeri represent, but also the value of Juventus for the Nazionale.

“Are we going to call a truce? We have different positions, but I don’t think we can talk about this as a war.”
