FIGC President Gravina: ‘Juventus meeting wasn’t secret’

FIGC President Gabriele Gravina shrugged off revelations he had a meeting with Juventus, Milan, Inter and other club chiefs at dinner. ‘It wasn’t secret at all, I’ve had many of them.’

The encounter occurred at Juve President Andrea Agnelli’s mother’s home outside Turin in September 2021.

It was revealed during a wiretapped phone conversation that Agnelli had the next day, but there is no record of what was said at the meeting.

Also present were Atalanta chief Luca Percassi, Genoa President Enrico Preziosi, Inter director Beppe Marotta, Milan President Paolo Scaroni, Udinese CEO Campoccia, Bologna director Fenucci and at the time the Lega Serie A President Paolo Dal Pino.

“It’s all rubbish, I am perfectly calm,” assured Gravina today when questioned on the meeting.

“We already clarified why we had that meeting, it was to discuss football. It wasn’t secret at all, I’ve had many of them.”

By the comments that Agnelli made on the wiretapped conversation, it seems they were discussing the creation of a media company for Serie A and ways to boost the revenue of all Italian clubs.

Juventus are under investigation for alleged financial irregularities, questioned now by the public prosecutor in Turin, by the FIGC and by UEFA.

  1. How the hell is it legal to leak private conversation from wiretaps (especially if it doesn’t contain incriminating content)???

  2. It does not matter whether the meeting was secret or not. What is not a secret is the habitual lying, deceit and corruption exemplified by Pub FC better known as the dollar tree of Europe. Like a cheating partner, the bushwhackers of the continent have an addiction problem with numbers and rehab is no longer an option.
