Exor, the holding company with a controlling stake in Juventus, says Gianluca Ferrero is the candidate to replace Andrea Agnelli as the Old Lady’s President.

Agnelli resigned with all the club’s board members after an emergency meeting on Monday evening following an investigation for alleged tax fraud from the Turin Prosecutor and the requests from CONSOB, the Italian body in charge of supervising activities in the stock exchange market, to clarify the club’s balance sheet at June 2021.

Juventus registered a record loss of €254.3m for 2021-22.

Exor, the holding company that formally owns Juventus, indicated Gianluca Ferrero as the candidate to replace Agnelli at the helm of the club.

“Ferrero has solid experience and technical competence as well as a true passion for the Bianconeri, which make him the best candidate to cover the role,” Exor said in a statement.

“Exor will communicate the list of candidates to renew the board of directors within the terms of the law.”

Juventus confirmed with an official statement on Monday that Maurizio Scanavino will be their new CEO, while the shareholders’ meeting has been confirmed for December 27. The next board of directors meeting is on January 18, 2023.

  1. Now is time for the legends of bush league happy hour to bring back the old gang. Don Secco should be sworn in as president and must take the sacred vow to move decimal points. Boumsong can be sporting director and Bendtner VP. PhD Max needs to a proper say in transfer requests whist plotting the way back hopefully in the fourth tier.
