Juventus board members have resigned after an emergency meeting at Continassa today, here’s who they are and why they stepped back.

The Bianconeri have not confirmed the news officially, but several reputable sources in Italy, including Sky Sport Italia, Goal.com and Gazzetta claim President Andrea Agnelli and the club’s board members have resigned.

But why did they do so?

According to Gazzetta, the decision was taken following the investigation for alleged false accounting and false communications to the market which led CONSOB, the Italian body in charge of supervising activities in the stock exchange market, to ask for clarification on the club’s balance sheet at June 2021.

Following CONSOB’s request, Juventus postponed their shareholders meeting from November 23 to December 27, but in the meantime, the entire board of directors, including President Agnelli has resigned. The new board of directors meeting will take place next year, on January 18, 2023, while the shareholders’ meeting has been confirmed for December 27.

The Turin Prosecutor also investigated the four months’ salaries Juventus players gave up in 2020, following the COVID pandemic. Investigators aim to prove that Juventus players didn’t give up on the entire sum, but only missed one month and continued to receive money thanks to private agreements with the club, contrary to what Juventus, one of the clubs listed on the stock market, had communicated.

Who were Juventus’ board members?

Andrea Agnelli – President

Pavel Nedved – Vice President

Maurizio Arrivabene – CEO

Laurence Debroux – Director

Massimo Della Ragione – Independent Director

Kathryn Fink – Independent Director

Daniela Marilungo – Independent Director
