Juventus request return of 2006 Scudetto

Juventus have requested that the two Serie A titles they lost due to the 2006 Calciopoli match-fixing scandal be returned to them.

The Old Lady were stripped of their 2005 and 2006 Scudetti in the aftermath of the controversy with Inter Milan being handed the 2006 trophy and the 2005 version being given to no one. They were also relegated to Serie B and lost players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Fabio Cannavaro and Gianluca Zambrotta to other teams.

Juve say new evidence produced in a Naples criminal trial linked to the scandal shows Inter were also involved in the affair and have asked the Italian soccer federation to take away the 2006 title from the European champions, who deny wrongdoing.

"We have requested the 2006 Scudetto to be revoked (from Inter) and we have had sufficient guarantees from the federation that we will shortly have an answer, which we await with confidence," president Andrea Agnelli told Juve's annual general meeting.

"We also have the case in the Naples court. If the correctness of the club's actions in the relevant years is ascertained, we will be able to consider action aimed at reassigning the titles."

Agnelli also hailed progress on Juve's new stadium, which is on course to be ready for the start of next season but is still without a sponsor, and welcomed former midfielder Pavel Nedved onto the Serie A club's board.
