CONI sure 'Juve will abide by rules'

CONI President Gianni Petrucci is “confident Juventus will respect the rules” by placing a new Calciopoli-baiting motto on their shirts.

The Bianconeri had been expected to add a third star to their jerseys for next season, each one representing 10 Scudetti.

This raised huge controversy, as the club was stripped of two titles in the Calciopoli scandal, so have 28 rather than 30.

Instead, Juve announced they will have a motto on the club symbol that reads: ‘30 sul campo’ (30 won on the pitch).

“I know President Andrea Agnelli very well and really respect him as a person,” commented Petrucci, President of the Italian Olympic Committee.

“For this reason I am firmly confident Juventus will respect the rules with whatever it is they’ll do.”
