Juventus referred over Motta deal

Juventus have been referred to the FIGC over the Marco Motta transfer, and could even be deducted points.

The Italian federation has announced that it is investigating the Bianconeri, along with Udinese and Genoa for an alleged breach of rules concerning agents.

Nine individuals have also been named Andrea Stramaccioni, Gino Pozzo, Franco Collavino, Cristiano Giaretta, Giuseppe Bozzo, Marco Motta, Giuseppe Marotta, Alessandro Zarbano and Fabio Paratici.

It’s alleged that, in breach of regulations which stood until March of this year, Bozzo was paid for agent work without the prior written consent of the FIGC.

Juventus and Udinese are under suspicion over the transfer of Marco Motta, with Gazzetta dello Sport speculating that a fine of €50,000-€180,000 is likely.

However, the sports daily suggests there could even be a point deduction of one or two points for the sides involved.

“It was a surprise for me,” Motta told Tuttomercatoweb.

“I accepted an offer and moved from Roma to Udinese. I didn’t think I was risking anything, we’ll see how the situation evolves.”

Motta's time in Turin was not successful, with the full-back released in January having played just 23 minutes since 2011.

Despite 22 appearances in his first season with the club, Motta was made a scapegoat by fans as the club struggled. He is currently without a club, after nine games for Watford.
